Mercury Reporting Amendments
EPA published a final rule to amend the mercury inventory reporting requirements for persons who import pre-assembled products that contain a mercury-added component.
Mercury Inventory Report
On March 30, 2020, EPA published an inventory report on the supply, use, and trade of mercury in the United States, as required by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The report is the first in a series of triennial reports supported by Agency’s mercury inventory reporting rule.

Small-scale gold refining is a major cause of air pollution from mercury. EPA helped design a low-cost mercury capture system that is simple to build and install, uses locally available materials, and reduces mercury emissions by at least 80%.
