U.S. EPA has released the latest version of the TRI-MEweb software to be used to meet 2011 TRI reporting requirements. This latest version focuses on 16 new chemicals EPA added to the TRI list for the 2011 reporting year. It is the largest chemical expansion of the program in more than a decade. TRI-MEweb is available at www.epa.gov/tri/report/software/trimeweb/index.htm.

Georgia encourages electronic submissions. EPA proposed a rule that requires electronic TRI reporting using the TRI-MEweb reporting application beginning next year. The only exception would be for the few facilities that submit trade secret TRI information, which would continue to be submitted in hard copy.

In addition, Georgia EPD requires an annual hazardous substance reporting fee based on total annual releases, as follows: $575 between 1 and 999 pounds (lb), $1,150 between 1,000 lb and 9,999 lb, and $1,725 for releases of 10,000 lb or more. Each facility must complete a Hazardous Substance Reporting Fee Report and send it with the fee to DNR.
