What's New for TRI Reports Due July 1?
Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) regulations, TRI reporting is required from facilities in certain industry groups that manufactured, imported, processed, or used large volumes of listed chemical substances in 2021.
What’s New for TRI Reports in 2022?A few important changes are in effect for facilities submitting TRI reports, including:
- Natural gas processing facilities that receive and refine natural gas are now subject to TRI reporting (first report due July 1, 2023)
- Many PFAS chemicals have been added to the list of reportable substances in recent years
- TRI reporting was extended to contract sterilization facilities that manufacture, process, or use ethylene oxide (and ethylene glycol, in some cases)
Who Must Submit TRI Reporting?EPA lays out who must report in 40 CFR 372.1. Designated facilities that must submit TRI reporting are facilities that:
- Employ 10 or more full-time employees (or equivalent hours worked); and
- Are assigned SIC Major Group code 10, 12, or 20—39 or SIC Industry Groups 4911, 4931, 4939, 4953, 5169, 5171, 7839; or that are Federal agencies; and
- Manufactured, imported, processed, or used a covered chemical in a quantity exceeding the given threshold.
Reporting thresholds are found in Part 372.25. Generally, covered facilities must report if they manufactured, imported, or processed more than 25,000 pounds of a listed chemical during the previous year. Facilities that “otherwise used” more than 10,000 pounds of a listed chemical must report as well.
Lower Thresholds for Chemicals of Special ConcernThe reporting thresholds for “chemicals of special concern” are significantly lower, due to the potential of some substances to inflict lasting damage on human health or the environment. Chemicals of special concern, which include persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) substances, are listed in 40 CFR 372.28.

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!
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
You blew the doors off the competition!
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.

The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
