Economic Analysis Of The Final Rule To Modify Reporting Of Persistent Bioaccumulative Toxic Chemicals Under EPCRA Section 313.
The rule lowers the reporting thresholds for certain TRI chemicals that persist and bioaccumulate. In addition, it adds certain PBT chemicals not already listed on the TRI list of reportable substances. It also makes other changes in TRI reporting on PBT chemicals to improve the quality of information on these chemicals. The analysis estimates costs to private industry, publicly owned facilities, and EPA. It also estimates impacts on small businesses and governments. 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).
