EPA Proposes to Add DINP to EPCRA 313 Reporting List
EPA will accept public comments on the proposed rule until October 7, 2022.
Sometimes referred to as SARA 313 or Form R reporting, section 313 of EPCRA requires facilities that manufacture, import, process, or use certain chemicals to report annually to EPA about their activities if they exceed regulatory thresholds.
From the proposed rule:
“EPA is now proposing to list the DINP category based on our preliminary conclusion that it is reasonably anticipated to cause cancer and serious or irreversible chronic health effects including developmental, kidney, and liver toxicity.”
DINP is a family of colorless, oily liquids used as plasticizers, particularly in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
A petition to add DINP to the EPCRA 313 reporting program was submitted in 2000, prompting EPA to complete a hazard assessment and propose a rule to add the category to the list of reportable substances. EPA revised its hazard assessment based on comments received and requested further comment with a notice of data availability (NODA) in 2005.
The rulemaking effort was never finalized. Earlier this year, a settlement was reached which requires EPA to add DINP to the TRI list no later than January 31, 2023, or officially withdraw the rulemaking effort that began in 2000.
EPCRA (Right-to-Know) & CERCLA (Superfund) Online CourseMany facilities that manufacture, process, and use hazardous chemicals must comply with detailed requirements for chemical inventory reporting, release reporting, and emergency preparedness.
The Superfund and Right-to-Know Act Regulations online course familiarizes EHS professionals with the complex planning and reporting responsibilities in the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).

I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
Environmental Health & Safety Technician
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Director of Safety & Env Affairs
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.
Hazardous Waste Professional
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.
Environmental, Health & Safety Regional Manager
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
As always, Lion never disappoints
