Overview:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced the amended Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reporting requirements in an effort to increase transparency, environmental information, and environmental justice. The scope of the TRI now includes additional chemicals and facilities, with a specific emphasis on the facilities that are presently not reporting on ethylene oxide (EtO) releases. EPA also continues to add new per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to the TRI chemical list. The automatic addition of more PFAS, such as perfluorobutane sulfonic acid (PFBS), is also anticipated subsequent to EPA’s publication of toxicity assessment on the said chemical.

These notable developments in the regulatory paradigm underscore the need for companies to revisit their practices and prepare for heightened compliance. They must also keep themselves abreast of emerging regulatory developments to avoid liabilities.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will present a comprehensive discussion of the new TRI reporting requirements. Speakers will also discuss current and emerging regulatory developments and share best practices to prepare for compliance.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA): An Overview
  • The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program
  • New PFAS and TRI Reporting Requirements
  • Critical Issues and Challenges
  • Best Compliance Practices
  • Regulatory Outlook
