TOPIC AND SPEAKER
Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) created the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program. Under the requirements of EPCRA, all U.S. facilities that meet TRI reporting criteria must submit TRI data to EPA and the relevant state or tribe by July 1 of each year.
EPA conducts inspections to assess EPCRA non-compliance and may issue civil penalties, including monetary fines, and can also require correction of the violation.
During his presentation, our speaker, Chris Rascher will:
Provide background on TRI
Discuss what to expect if you get an inspection letter
Share his inside knowledge on what inspectors look for during the onsite inspection
Relay his thoughts on how to be prepared for an EPA TRI Inspection
Discuss what happens if there are violations
Touch on the current focus of the national TRI program
