Join our panel of experts, Elizabeth Denly and Melissa Hart with TRC, and Jim Price, Partner with Spencer Fane, for a live webinar discussing the implications of the addition of numerous PFAS chemicals to TRI reporting requirements for the 2020 reporting year, due in a few weeks.
The National Defense Authorization Act of 2020 added 172 individual PFAS compounds to the existing list of chemicals for the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) under Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). These new chemicals must be evaluated for the 2020 TRI reporting year due July 1, 2021. Facilities must identify any process-related materials that contain any of these PFAS compounds above TRI de minimis levels. As PFAS are used in a wide range of materials, often at relatively low concentrations, facilities will need to conduct threshold evaluations to determine if reporting is required. Understanding how to identify PFAS-containing materials and assess and prepare threshold calculations is critical to knowing whether you have a reporting responsibility.
Topics will include:
* PFAS related environmental issues;
* Implications of the expanding PFAS TRI regulations, including environmental justice;
* How TRI has changed as a result of the PFAS Act of 2019;
* Approaches to addressing TRI assessment and reporting;
* Legal perspectives on PFAS and other emerging constituents.
