SARA Reporting/Support

 

 

 

 

 

GBMc & Associates provides environmental consulting to industrial clients to ensure compliance with the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Section 313, which is also known as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) or more commonly, Form R or TRI. SARA Title III includes requirements for facilities to report annual Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) data.  This information is publicly available and is often evaluated by regulatory agencies, environmental groups and citizens as a measure of a facility's environmental performance.

Facilities must annually evaluate regulated chemicals at their facility that are manufactured, processed and otherwise used against applicable reportable thresholds; Form R reporting is required for each regulated chemical that exceeds that threshold. For each report, the quantity of that chemical released and sent off-site must be reported with supplemental information to EPA. Submittals must be completed using EPA's TRI-MEweb (Toxics Release Inventory - Made Easy Web) paperless reporting tool and fees submitted to the appropriate state agency.

GBMc's EPCRA Section 313 or Form R environmental consulting support can include:

  • on-site development or verification of chemical inventories,
  • determination of reportable chemicals from chemical inventories we have developed or as provided by clients,
  • development and submittal of the resulting EPCRA Section 313 report (TRI Form R) using EPA's TRI-MEweb, and
  • calculating appropriate fees and coordinating payment instructions with the EPCRA Compliance Coordinator at various state agencies.

We also offer clients full documentation of the TRI reporting determination for their environmental records to meet the requirements of 40 CFR Part 372.10 and 40 CFR Part 372.30.
