Last year, the EPA issued a final rule titled “Mercury; Reporting Requirements for the TSCA Mercury.” Do you know if your business is required to report by the July 1 deadline?

If either elemental mercury or a mercury compound was part of your business in 2018, you should determine your regulatory status now and develop a compliance plan. See our exclusive article and detailed fact sheet to learn more about this new reporting requirement. Once you are ready to report, you must use the the Mercury Electronic Reporting (MER) application, which is available at the EPA’s Central Data Exchange (CDX).
