If your facility manufactures, imports, processes, or otherwise uses a toxic chemical above the established threshold, it must file a TRI report with EPA by July 1 of the following year. Since new toxic chemicals are added to the SARA 313 list from year to year, you should be aware of any changes to the list of toxic chemicals or to the PBT list.

For the purposes of the TRI report, a toxic chemical is any chemical identified at 40 CFR 372.65
(a) by alphabetical listing of the chemical description,
(b) by CAS (Chemical Abstracts Service) registry number, or
(c) if the chemical fits the definition of a listed toxic chemical category.

You should check each of the three parts of the list to determine if your facility manufactures, processes, or otherwise uses any toxic chemicals.

Persistent bioaccumulative toxic chemicals (PBTs) are chemicals that EPA deems especially dangerous because these chemicals tend to accumulate in living tissue or are especially toxic. EPA has established lower thresholds for listed PBT chemicals.

A list of PBT chemicals, guidance documents and other information may be found at http://epa.gov/tri/lawsandregs/pbt/pbtrule.htm. A current list of SARA 313 toxic chemicals is found at http://epa.gov/tri/chemical/index.htm.
