TRI reports are due by July 1 of each year

Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Section 313, was created to help communities plan for chemical emergencies. It requires reporting on the storage, use and releases of hazardous substances to federal, state, and local governments.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) collects data on the releases of certain chemicals to the air, water, and land. The USEPA then makes this information available to the public through the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI). The TRI also contains information about how chemicals are treated, recycled, or otherwise disposed of by facilities.

TRI reporting requirements are based on:

State TRI Program Requirements?

Many states, including Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, and New York, have their own TRI programs or forms. Some states also require reporting on additional chemicals, such as sodium hydroxide and ferric sulfate. Click your state's icon to learn more.
