Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program

TRI Rulemakings

TRI rulemakings are grouped below based on whether they're related to TRI chemicals, TRI industry sectors or other changes in TRI reporting requirements. Clicking on a link to a recently-published rule will take you to a separate webpage where you'll find more information, including a summary and FAQs. Rules older than two years don't have separate webpages, but you'll still find links to the official text in the Federal Register, as well as a link to the docket where more information and supporting documents are stored.
