The document is designed to aid EPA staff and contractors when evaluating the quality of data submitted on EPA Form R, the report submitted to EPA by industrial facilities for Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting. The TRI is an annual inventory compiled by EPA of releases of listed toxic chemicals into the environment by manufacturing facilities. Such facilities are required to submit release estimates and other pertinent data under requirements of Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986. The manual contains background information on TRI reporting requirements, suggestions for preparing for a site audit and an audit checklist. The checklist questions are designed to aid the auditor in assessing the completeness and quality of the TRI data as he reviews the Form R reports and supporting documentation. The manual is intended for use during technical data quality audits unrelated to EPCRA Section 313 enforcement inspections, but may be used by enforcement personnel as a supplemental technical reference.
