Lets face it. TRI Reporting can be a big pain, especially if you're unsure how to do it or new at it. Here we discuss what we see as common mistakes and errors people who conduct reporting themselves can stumble into.
Like many others, we’re coming down the home stretch for Toxic Release Inventory Reporting, which is due July 1st. At this time of year, we get a lot of questions from facilities who are trying to do their own reporting, which is very understandable since it can be confusing, especially if you haven’t done it before.
Understanding some important points of TRI reporting is critical, since it can make the difference between being out of compliance and risking a fine from the USEPA, or doing it correctly and being in compliance. Being out of compliance with Toxic Release Inventory Reporting can be a big headache, including potential (huge) monetary fines, additional inspections, and more.
Our advice: do the reporting, and move on. Don't skip it, don't wait, just get it done, and get it done correctly.
