Executive Order 13693 was the most recent, and current order that required federal facilities to comply with all aspects of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act. On May 17, 2018, the President issued E.O. 13834, “Executive Order Regarding Efficient Federal Operations”, which, in part, revoked E.O. 13693. Are federal facilities still required to comply with the reporting requirements under EPCRA sections 302, 304, 311, and 312?
The FedCenter Web site (https://www.fedcenter.gov/programs/eo13693/), provides the following guidance in relation to E.O. 13693:
“Pending issuance of E.O. 13834 implementing instructions or further direction from Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ), agencies should continue to use existing guidance unless revised or revoked, particularly with regard to established procedures, reporting processes, definitions, and technical matters. If you have questions, contact your Agencies sustainability staff.”
