Facilities that manufacture, process or use toxic chemicals are required to annually report the amount of chemicals they release and dispose of to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) and to the state in which they reside.
(New!!!) DTSC has established a State TRI data exchange agreement with U.S. EPA. California facilities no longer need to submit a copy of their TRI reports to DTSC. Whether facilities submit their TRI reports to the U.S. EPA via the Toxic Release Inventory – Made Easy, web application (TRI-MEweb) software or via hardcopy, the State TRI data exchange will forward the TRI data to DTSC. This should reduce the burden imposed on California facilities from TRI reporting.
California facilities are required to submit their TRI reports by using the TRI-MEweb, or by hard copy to U.S. EPA. DTSC encourages California facilities to use the TRI-MEweb application to submit their TRI reports. Please consider carefully your decision to submit hard copy, paper TRI reports and the devastation it might impart to the fragile and cute woodland creatures which rely on the nation’s forests for their only homes.
If you have questions regarding submitting your TRI reports, please contact:
