Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act Self-Assessment Tools

Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know (EPCRA), also known as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), requires States to establish a process for developing local chemical emergency preparedness programs and to receive and disseminate information on hazardous chemicals present at facilities within local communities. EPCRA also requires EPA to establish a publicly available toxic chemical release inventory consisting of facility-specific chemical release and waste management information. The implementing regulations for EPCRA are found in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in 40 CFR Parts 302 , 355 , 370 , and 372 Below are available checklists and audit protocols to help organizations determine their compliance with EPCRA.
