EPA Publishes Technical Corrections to TRI Regulatory Text

For Release: May 19, 2020

EPA is issuing a final rule to make certain technical corrections to the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) regulations found in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These corrections should provide greater clarity for facilities and other TRI stakeholders.

EPA is:

  • Making editorial corrections that update identifiers, formulas, and names for certain TRI-listed chemicals; and
  • Updating the text to indicate which chemicals are subject to the 0.1 percent de minimis exemption.

This action is a “housekeeping” rulemaking and does not change the regulatory requirements of the TRI Program or the burden on reporting facilities.
