Due to the popularity of this webinar, and the timeliness of the regulations, we will be offering this pre-recorded presentation again! The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, otherwise referred to as EPCRA was created in 1986 under the Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act ("SARA"). The EPCRA's purpose was to fill an informational void concerning the use of toxic and hazardous chemicals and to improve emergency response capabilities in the event of an accidental release of such chemicals that could potentially endanger the general public. In the 1980's there was increased attention on the presence and use of toxic chemicals in or near populated communities and residential developments. This attention was the direct result of numerous catastrophes involving hazardous chemicals in the United States and around the world. The most notable being the 1984 Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal India, which killed over 2,500 people and injured countless others. Even though there are some errors regarding data quality elements in the EPA TRI software, reporting is still required. Are you a facility that "should" be reporting but aren’t?
