Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program

Toxics Release Inventory Form A Eligibility Revisions Implementing the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act

On this page:

Rule Summary

This rule returned Toxics Release Inventory Form A eligibility for both PBT and non-PBT chemicals to the thresholds established prior to the 2006 TRI Burden Reduction Rule. Specifically, after this rule, facilities could no longer use Form A to report PBT chemicals. For non-PBT chemicals, the rule reinstated the 500-pound annual reporting amount (the total of releases and other waste management) and 1,000,000 pounds manufactured, processed or otherwise used Form A eligibility threshold. EPA took this action to comply with the ‘‘Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009,’’ enacted on March 11, 2009.
