Toxic Release Inventory Program (TRI)

The Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) created the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program to help communities plan for chemical emergencies. It also requires industry to report on the storage, use and releases of hazardous substances to federal, state, and local governments. EPCRA requires state and local governments, and Indian tribes to use this information to prepare their community from potential risks.

Under the requirements of EPCRA, all U.S. facilities that meet TRI Reporting Criteria must submit TRI data electronically to EPA ONLY via Central Data Exchange (CDX) and the relevant state or tribe by July 1 of each year.

EPA investigates cases of EPCRA non-compliance and may issue civil penalties, including monetary fines, and may also require correction of the violation. EPCRA Section 313 compliance resources include inspectors and attorneys in each of EPA's 10 regional offices and at EPA headquarters.

The State of Florida collects annual reporting fees of $150.00 per Toxic Chemical Release Inventory Form-R report and $75.00 per chemical listed on each Form-A alternate threshold through E-Plan at: https://erplan.net/eplan/home.htm Filers now have the option of paying fees with a credit card or electronic funds transfer (ACH) from their bank account. Should you have questions or require special accommodation, please contact the TRI Program Coordinator.

*Federal Facilities are exempt from paying Section 313 fees.
