Economic Analysis Of The Final Rule To Modify Reporting Of Lead And Lead Compounds Under EPCRA Section 313.
The rule lowers the reporting thresholds for lead and lead compounds, based on their persistence and bioaccumulation in the environment. The analysis estimates costs to private industry and EPA and the impacts on small businesses. Benefits were discussed qualitatively in terms of the uses of TRI data, both the number of times the data are accessed, the types of entities using the data, and the results of data use (i.e., the types of analyses conducted).
