Environmental Reporting Training

Professional training on environmental reporting requirements including EPCRA, TRI, Tier II, air emissions, Title V, hazardous waste, toxics substances, and water discharges.

Advanced TRI Reporting Workshop

While TRI reporting has been around for quite some time, people are still making serious mistakes completing the report, as well as in threshold and release determinations. U.S. EPA enforcement activity provides useful insight to their expectations for thoroughness and documentation practices. This new 1-day workshop will show attendees how to correctly assess report applicability, perform and document MPOU threshold determinations, fill out the reporting forms with release/transfer data, and use TRIME-Web for reporting.

Complimentary Seminar: (Lunch) Tier II Right-to-Know Reporting Updates for RY2017

The Environmental Protection Agency recently amended its hazardous chemical reporting regulations due to the changes in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). OSHA's HCS was recently revised to conform to the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). Manufacturers and importers were required to develop standardized Safety Data Sheets (formerly known as ``Material Safety Data Sheets'') and distribute them to downstream users of their chemicals. These changes in HCS affect the reporting requirements under sections 311 and 312 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).

Based on the new classification criteria that OSHA adopted, EPA is revising the existing hazard categories for hazardous chemical inventory form reporting under EPCRA Section 312 and for list reporting under section 311. The Louisiana State Police (LSP) is in the process of making changes to their electronic reporting system in incorporate these changes.  This luncheon seminar will include a review of the updates to the LSP Tier II electronic inventory filing system and provide a general overview of Louisiana Tier II reporting requirements.

No sessions are scheduled right now.

    TRI Reporting Workshop - Half-Day

    Under the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program, industrial facilities are required to inventory the amounts of select toxic chemicals manufactured, processed, and/or used each year and to prepare TRI reports. Complying can require a large amount of effort and detail. Even with years of TRI reporting experience, it’s is easy to make a mistake or fail to document critical assumptions. EPA is actively reviewing TRI data and using the data to guide their regulatory and enforcement priorities. Learn more about common errors and understanding the guidance. This new ½-day workshop addresses the following:

  • Correctly categorizing metals versus metal compounds for TRI applicability and reporting purposes
  • Correctly applying the de minimis threshold when conducting your TRI applicability analysis
  • Correctly reporting TRI chemicals that are listed as ranges in the SDS
