The July 1 due date for Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting (i.e., Form R or Form A reports) is again coming up. A few notable changes to reporting requirements affect 2016 submissions:
- A new chemical has been added to the TRI reporting list for 2016. In November 2015, EPA added 1-bromopropane, used primarily in various industries as a solvent/degreaser. If the reporting thresholds for manufacture, processing or other use of this chemical were exceeded at your facility in 2016, it must be reported.
- The TRI-ME web application for report preparation and submission has been updated! We have done a run-through of the revised program and found that, just as EPA claims, the “modernized” version of TRI-ME web does make the process more streamlined and simplified. It just looks better, too.
Remember, you must use the TRI-ME web application (accessed through EPA’s Central Data Exchange at cdx.epa.gov) to submit and certify annual TRI reports. If you’re unfamiliar with the application or need help with any aspect of TRI reporting, please contact T. Cozzie Consulting for assistance.
The July 1 deadline for Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting again looms! What’s new for your Form R (or Form A) reports?
You can find information on the TRI reporting changes on the EPA website. Notably, you should be aware of the following revisions and updates:
New TRI chemicals: The chemical o-nitrotoluene has been added to the list of chemicals subject to TRI reporting requirements and should be reported for 2014.
New TRI-MEweb features: TRI-MEweb is EPA’s required on-line reporting application. You can now use TRI-MEweb to update facility location and contact information without having to submit a TRI reporting form, or to indicate that you will not be submitting a form for one or more previously reported chemicals or even will not be reporting at all for the current year.
For 2014, the following data entry requirements and options apply:
