It’s not over just yet – the July 1st TRI and P2 Annual Progress Report deadlines will be here before you know it.
The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) program requires regulated industries to report certain toxic chemicals that are released to the environment. The TRI reporting program is often referred to as Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) which was passed by Congress in 1986. The intent of the rule is to provide information to the public about certain toxic chemicals, releases, waste management and pollution prevention from regulated industries.
The list of industries covered by Section 313 of EPCRA is extensive and includes most manufacturing, mining, utilities, wholesalers, publishing companies and hazardous waste facilities. Industries can compare their North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code with those referenced in the TRI Reporting Forms and Instructions to determine whether they are regulated or not.
Regulated industries that have more than 10 employees must then determine whether they manufacture, process or otherwise use a TRI-listed chemical (of which there are more than 590) above the threshold levels in a calendar year. Facilities that meet these criteria must then prepare and submit information to the EPA and State using the Form R or Form A documentation.
