Title:EPA Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Compliance At Printing Facilities
Author(s):Jacobson, Debra
Subject(s):Printing industry -- Regulation
Abstract:Due to the deadly release of methyl isocyanate (MIC) in Bhopal, India in the early 1980s and several other releases of toxic chemicals in the United States, Congress passed legislation called Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1988 (SARA). This requires states, communities and industry to work together to plan for and respond to chemical accidents, develop inventories of hazardous substances, track toxic chemical releases, and provide public access to information on hazardous substances. This law, often referred to as SARA Title III or EPCRA (Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act), establishes several different reporting and planning requirements for businesses that handle, store or manufacture over 600 listed hazardous materials above specified thresholds.These reports and plans provide federal, state, and local emergency planning and response agencies with information about the amounts of chemicals businesses store, use, routinely release and accidentally spill. They also provide the public and local governments with information about chemical hazards in their communities, as well as providing information necessary to enable emergency responders to respond safely to accidents at these facilities.
