EPCRA 311 - 312 Reporting - Recent Changes To Reporting Requirements

In November 2008, US EPA published a revision to rules under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Sections 311 and 312. These revisions may affect reporting for some facilities in 2009.

The key revisions included the following:

  • Clarification on acceptable calculation methods for mixtures containing EPCRA chemicals to determine if reporting thresholds are exceeded;

  • Defining the time allowed to report changes at the facility relevant to EPCRA chemicals to appropriate agencies. This includes notifying that the facility is no longer in operation, then new extremely hazardous substances (EHSs) are present at the facility, if EHSs are moved to a different location at the facility, if EHSs are no longer present at the facility, and other changes relevant to emergency planning.
