This seminar is a hands-on experience with two Federal reporting requirements established under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA). Compliance with section 311 and 312 mandates facilities that exceed quantity in storage of certain chemicals, including any material for which a SDS is received and stored in 10,000 pounds or more, must be reported on Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Forms (Tier Two’s). This seminar goes into detail of determining what gets reported and how to accomplish the reporting. Similarly, section 313 mandates facilities that manufacture, process, or use more than prescribed amounts must complete a Toxic Release Inventory (TRI or Form R) for each compound handled above threshold amounts.
Any facility required under Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations to maintain MSDSs for hazardous chemicals stored or used in the work place. Facilities with chemicals in quantities that equal or exceed the following thresholds must report:
Your facility is required to report to the TRI Program if it meets ALL of these three threshold criteria:
EPCRA section 325 allows civil and administrative penalties ranging up to $10,000 - $75,000 per violation or per day per violation when facilities fail to comply with the reporting requirements. Criminal penalties up to $50,000 or five years in prison apply to any person who knowingly and willfully fails to provide emergency release notification.
