New TRI Reporting Requirement

As you are planning for your 2012 environmental reporting, don’t forget to include hydrogen sulfide.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Hydrogen sulfide was added to the TRI list of toxic chemicals in a final rule published on December 1, 1993. On August 22, 1994, EPA issued an Administrative Stay of the reporting requirements for hydrogen sulfide in order to evaluate issues brought to the Agency’s attention after promulgation of the final rule…”

However, with the Administrative Stay lifted, facilities are required to submit TRI reports for hydrogen sulfide beginning with the 2012 reporting year (reports due July 1, 2013)

For more information about the reporting requirement for hydrogen sulfide see the EPA website: http://www.epa.gov/tri/lawsandregs/hydrogensulfide/indexf.html
