PA EPA ISSUES FED. REGISTER NOTICE ON FAC. IDENT. INITIATIVE

FOR RELEASE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1996

EPA ISSUES FEDERAL REGISTER NOTICE ON
FACILITY IDENTIFICATION INITIATIVE

EPA is issuing a Federal Register Notice to the public soliciting comments on the Agency's Facility Identification Initiative. The goal of the program is to streamline the collection of identifying information from facilities subject to federal environmental reporting requirements and provide the public with easier access to this data. The initiative would for the first time provide the public with a single identification for industrial facilities that report environmental information to federal and state governments. The notice, to appear in the Federal Register the week of Oct. 7, contains a detailed discussion of the issues and poses a number of questions for public comment. For more information, call Diane Sheridan at 202- 260-3435 or e-mail sheridan.diane@epamail.epa.gov.
