The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) and the Clean Air Acts (CAA) chemical accident prevention provisions in section 112(r) require facilities to provide information on the presence of hazardous chemicals in communities. These laws have built better relationships among government at all levels, business and community leaders, environmental and other public-interest organizations, and individual citizens. The purpose of this factsheet is to familiarize Tribal leaders with EPCRA and CAA section 112(r) Risk Management Program requirements. The information available under these laws can promote an integrated approach to chemical safety on Tribal lands.
