During the first half of each new year, facilities are reviewing their chemical processing and usage activities to determine if an annual EPCRA “Toxic Release Inventory” report will need to be submitted this year. These reports are due no later than July 1 each year.
The Emergency Planning & Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) was enacted by Congress to help local communities protect public health, safety, and the environment from chemical hazards. EPCRA Section 313 addresses the processing and other uses of listed Section 313 Chemicals at a site. For most States, EPCRA Toxic Release Inventory (or TRI) reports are required for manufacturing sector facilities only; however, States can elect to require that TRI reports be submitted by any facility that uses Section 313 chemicals above reporting thresholds, including other private or public sector operations.
Caltha LLP provides technical support to facilities across the US to prepare and submit Form R Toxic Release Inventory reports under EPCRA 313. Because reports are typically generated on-line using the EPA CDX system, Caltha can prepare reports on behalf of clients. Our clients then review and submit the reports electronically.
