Under Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act  (EPCRA), 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 reports are due by July 1 of each year

TRI reporting requirements are based on:

Does your state have its own TRI program?

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.
