  • In 1984 and 1985, two highly publicized chemical accidents - one in Bhopal, India and the second in Institute, West Virginia - raised public awareness of the need to better understand the chemicals handled by businesses in their communities and to ensure that adequate emergency procedures are in place for responding to chemical accidents and spills. Congress responded to this need by enacting the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act of 1986 ("EPCRA"). Almost all facilities that manufacture, use, or store chemicals in any significant quantity are subject to some or all of the EPCRA emergency planning and routine reporting obligations.

    This is a convenient and conscient guide to EPCRA and the regulations implementing the Act. Topics covered include:

  • Emergency planning and notification
  • Substances and facilities subject to the EPCRA emergency planning process
  • Routine reporting requirements and MSDS reporting
  • General provisions
  • Trade secret factors and EPA trade secret regulation
  • Basic Practice Series
