There are three state agencies that work together to implement the RTK Act:
- The NJ Department of Health (NJDOH) enforces all provisions of the RTK Act in public workplaces and RTK labeling in private workplaces. The Department prepares Hazardous Substance Fact Sheets, the RTK brochure, and other materials to increase awareness of hazardous chemicals and help public employers comply with the RTK law.
- The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) enforces the community provisions of the RTK Act in the private sector (except for labeling). NJDEP is also responsible for implementing Title III (Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know) of the Federal Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), which establishes requirements for industry regarding emergency planning and reporting of hazardous chemicals.
- The NJ Department of Labor & Workforce Development (NJLWD) collects RTK fees from private employers that are used to implement the RTK Act and investigates complaints by public employees who suspect that they are being discriminated against for exercising their rights under the RTK law.
