NGP Facilities Added to TRI Reporting Rule
The Final Rule is effective December 27, 2021. It will apply to the reporting year that starts January 1, 2022 (reports due July 1, 2023).
To implement the rule, EPA added SIC 1321 to the table of codes to which the rule applies in 40 CFR 372.23(a). EPA also added 211130—Natural Gas Extraction as a sub-sector code in paragraph (c),
Commonly referred to as Toxic Release Inventory or TRI reporting, SARA 313 reporting, and/or “Form R” (the name of the original paper form), the Toxic Chemical Release Reporting Rule (40 CFR Part 372) It applies to facilities in specific industry sectors that manufacture, process, or handle chemicals in excess of regulatory thresholds.
In EPA's words:
Adding these facilities will meaningfully increase the information available to the public on releases and other waste management of listed chemicals from the NGP sector and further the purposes of EPCRA.
US EPA Final Rule (86 FR 224, November 24, 2021)
TRI reporting gives EPA (and the public) insight about how toxic chemicals enter the environment through the air, water, waste disposal/recycling, etc.

I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
The instructor was very dedicated to providing a quality experience. She did her best to make sure students were really comprehending the information.
Inventory Control Specialist
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
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
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
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!
