This document is intended to assist establishments and facilities designated by the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Major Group 10 (except SIC codes 1011, 1081, and 1094) in making compliance determinations under the EPCRA Section 313 reporting requirements and preparing Form R(s) or the Form A certification statement(s) as required. Chapter 1 serves as an introduction to TRI reporting and provides a brief background on the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act and information on where to obtain additional compliance assistance. Chapter 2 begins with how to determine if your facility must report. Chapter 2 concludes with a discussion on how you address trade secrets in your reporting and the kinds of records you should be keeping to support your reporting. Chapter 3 discusses how you calculate the activity thresholds (manufacture, process, and otherwise use) for the EPCRA Section 313 chemicals. Chapter 3 concludes with a discussion of how to determine whether EPCRA Section 313 chemicals exceed a reporting threshold, including focused discussions on issues specific to metal mining facilities. Chapter 4 discusses how you calculate the release and other waste management amounts for those EPCRA Section 313 chemicals for which you must prepare a report. This chapter provides a step-by-step approach designed to minimize the risk of overlooking an activity involving an EPCRA Section 313 chemical and any potential sources or types of releases and other waste management activities that your facility may conduct.
