Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program

Training on Basic TRI Reporting Concepts

Updated for the 2017 TRI reporting year, these training slides will help you determine:

  • if your facility is covered by EPCRA Section 313 (TRI), and
  • if your facility is covered, for which chemicals your facility must submit a TRI form.

You will also learn about:

  • making release and other waste management calculations and estimates,
  • When the Form A Certification statement can be used instead of the Form R,
  • Reporting exemptions (i.e., particular uses of TRI chemicals that don’t have to be included on TRI forms), and
  • General TRI Program and process information.
