On November 16, 2016, the USEPA published a proposed rule to add a NPE category, which contains thirteen NPEs, to the TRI list of reportable chemicals. NPEs are nonionic surfactants used in adhesives, wetting agents, emulsifiers, stabilizers, dispersants, defoamers, cleaners, paints, and coatings.

If finalized as proposed, facilities required to report NPEs included in the new category would file just one TRI report form for the covered NPEs.
