Federal Facilities and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA)

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requires certain regulated entities to report information about hazardous chemicals and substances at their facilities to Federal, state, and local authorities. The objective is to improve the facility's, or government agency's ability to plan for and respond to chemical emergencies, and to give citizens information about chemicals present in their communities. The President has issued Executive Orders to Federal agencies which mandate their compliance with certain EPCRA requirements. Part of EPA's mission is to ensure that Federal facilities comply with these requirements.
