Docket No.: Not yet available
Current Phase: Withdrawn
This Web page will be retained for 1 year for historical purposes, and then it will be removed from Reg DaRRT.
New information and a shift in the Agency's priorities warrant this rulemaking being withdrawn from the Regulatory Agenda at this time. Since no proposal was ever issued, this action is being withdrawn via the Regulatory Agenda. Withdrawing this action does not preclude EPA from pursuing the same action in the future.
Should the Agency opt to do so, it will create a new entry in the Regulatory Agenda for that action. EPA created this entry in the Regulatory Agenda because EPA was considering expanding the scope of industry sectors covered by Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) section 313, also known as the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) in support of the goal of providing comprehensive toxic chemical release and other waste management information to the federal, state, local, and Tribal governments and to the public, including citizens of communities surrounding covered facilities. As originally enacted, EPCRA 313 applied only to the manufacturing industry sectors, i.e., sectors in Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes 20 through 39. The statute, however, also allows the EPA Administrator to add sectors to TRI to the extent that doing so is relevant to the purposes of EPCRA 313. Under this authority, the EPA in 1997 added seven additional industry sectors to the list of sectors covered by TRI.
