 Interstate Technology Regulatory
 Council (ITRC)

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.


ITRC is a state-led coalition that works with industry and stakeholders to achieve regulatory acceptance of environmental technologies. ITRC consists of 40 states, the District of Columbia, multiple federal partners, industry participants, and others, all of whom cooperate to break down barriers and reduce compliance costs. This makes it easier to use new technologies and helps states maximize resources. ITRC’s mission is to bring together a diverse mix of environmental experts and stakeholders from both the public and private sectors to broaden and deepen technical knowledge and streamline the regulation of new environmental technologies.

ITRC accomplishes its mission in two ways. It develops guidance documents and training courses to meet the needs of both regulators and environmental consultants, and it works with state representatives to ensure that ITRC products and services have maximum impact among state environmental agencies and technology users.

The benefits that ITRC offers to state regulators and technology developers, vendors, and users include:

  • Helping regulators build their knowledge base and raise their confidence about new environmental technologies
  • Helping regulators save time and money when evaluating environmental technologies
  • Guiding technology developers in the collection of performance data to satisfy the requirements of multiple states
  • Helping technology vendors avoid the time and expense of conducting duplicative and costly demonstrations
  • Providing a reliable network among members of the environmental community to focus on innovative environmental technologies
