The deadline to submit your annual Toxic Release Inventory (TRI or FORM R) reports to the EPA is just around the corner on July 1, 2021. Before preparing these reports, you should ensure you are familiar with changes to reporting requirements for RY 2020.
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that have been the subject of new regulations in recent years. Beginning with the 2020 reporting year, 172 new PFAS chemicals have been added to the list of reportable chemicals under Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) program. Facilities that manufacture, process, or use 100 pounds or more per year of any of the listed PFAS chemicals must include those chemicals in their annual TRI report due July 1, 2021.
