Chemical Reporting

SARA 313

Since 1987, US manufacturing facilities have been obligated to track the manufacture, processing, and use of certain chemicals under EPA’s Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) program, authorized under SARA Section 313.  The number of substances has grown from approximately 300 in 1987 to over 600 today.

NCASI has published handbooks and other materials that are invaluable resources for facilities required to report under this program, most notably the NCASI Handbook of Chemical-Specific Information for SARA Section 313 Form R Reporting, updated annually.
