Section 313 of Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (“EPCRA“), 42 U.S.C. § 11001 to 11050, requires covered entities to submit reports to EPA and the applicable State concerning storage, processing, and use of certain toxic chemicals in order to increase the public’s knowledge of, and access to, such information. EPCRA is also known as the Toxic Chemical Release Inventory (“TRI”) program. Covered entities are required to submit TRI forms to EPA each year by July 1st. Beginning in 2014, the forms must be submitted electronically. Meeting TRI reporting deadlines is critical because violations of Section 313 reporting provisions may result in federal civil penalties of up to $27,500 per day.
