Alert: In 2018, EPA assessed over $325,000 in penalties associated with toxic release inventory (TRI) reporting. Do you know your reporting obligations so you can avoid these fines?
The July 1 deadline for submitting TRI reports to the EPA and your SERC is fast approaching. Avoid becoming part of these enforcement statistics by ensuring you are submitting your TRI report properly.
Over 20,000 facilities in different industry sectors must annually report how much of each toxic chemical they managed through recycling, energy recovery, treatment, and environmental releases. And each year, EPA makes changes to the reporting requirements.
In 2018, EPA finalized a rule adding a category of 13 specific nonylphenol ethoxylates to the list of TRI-reportable chemicals, but when does reporting begin for these chemicals? Has OSHA reclassified any chemicals as carcinogens, and what impact does that have on TRI reporting? What changes has EPA incorporated into the TRI-MEweb online reporting program?
Join us on June 4th for a webinar rebroadcast featuring live Q&A on how to ensure that your TRI reports are in proper order ahead of the upcoming compliance deadline.
