Persons Responsible for Reporting Definition of Facility; Disposal (Dispose); Reporting Responsibility; Waste Management Activities 51. A recycling and disposal facility encompasses several RCRA subtitle C hazardous waste and subtitle D municipal solid waste management units. Is this facility subject to EPCRA section 313?Yes. If this facility also meets employee and chemical thresholds, the facility is subject to EPCRA section 313. Because at least one unit at this facility is regulated by RCRA subtitle C and the facility’s operations are classified in NAICS code beginning with 562, for the purposes of EPCRA section 313, this facility is considered to be in NAICS code beginning with 562 (regulated under RCRA subtitle C) (40 CFR Section 372.23). As such, this facility must consider all non-exempted activities at the entire facility for TRI threshold determinations and, if reporting is triggered, release and other waste management reporting. The owner or operator should be sure to include any information the facility may have concerning toxic chemicals at the solid waste units of the facility as well as at the hazardous waste units.</div></b><div style="visibility:hidden"></div></b>-

Persons Responsible for Reporting Change of Ownership; Reporting Responsibility 85. A company purchased a facility in September through bankruptcy proceedings. The previous owner of the facility filed Form Rs under EPCRA section 313 for the preceding reporting year. The new owner of the facility has no plans to continue any manufacturing activities at the site. All listed EPCRA section 313 toxic chemicals at the facility were removed or sold by the previous owner as terms of the bankruptcy proceedings prior to final sale to the new owner. Who must submit Form Rs for the months during the reporting year that the facility was in operation and sold through bankruptcy? The new owner/operator of the facility is liable for filing Form Rs for the months of operation during the previous reporting year since he/she is the owner/operator of the facility on the reporting deadline. The purchase of a facility through bankruptcy proceedings does not negate the liability for reporting activities at the facility during the period it was in operation. The new owner/operator must attempt to acquire the necessary information to determine if Form Rs are to be submitted for the reporting year. If reports must be filed, the new owner/operator must submit them in a timely and accurate manner.</div></b><div style="visibility:hidden"></div></b>-

The three sites are owned by two different companies - Company A and Company B. All three sites operate completely independently of each other and have separate personnel, finances, and environmental reporting systems. Site 1 and its buildings and structures are owned and operated by Company A and site 3 and its buildings and structures are owned and operated by Company B. The middle site, site 2 and its buildings and structures, are owned by Company A and operated by Company B (see diagram). Are all three sites and their buildings and structures considered separate facilities under EPCRA section 313? Who is responsible for reporting for each?Site 1Owned andoperated by ASite 2Owned by A andoperated by BSite 3Owned andoperated by B Under 40 CFR Section 372.3 a facility is defined as; ‘all buildings, equipment, structures, and other stationary items which are located on a single site or on contiguous or adjacent sites and which are owned or operated by the same person.’ Because all buildings and structures located on sites 1 and 2 are located on contiguous property and are owned by the same person, they are considered one facility. Because all buildings and structures located on sites 2 and 3 are located on contiguous property and are operated by the same person, they are also considered one facility. Therefore, for purposes of determining thresholds, the toxic chemicals manufactured, processed, and otherwise used at site 2 must be counted toward both Facility A’s and Facility B’s threshold determinations. Because the operator is primarily responsible for reporting, estimating and reporting releases and other waste management calculations for sites 2 and 3 are the primary responsibility of Company B, and the release and other waste management reporting for site 1 is the primary responsibility of Company A. EPA allows the release and other waste management reporting to be done in this manner to avoid ‘double counting’ releases and waste management activities at site 2. However, provided thresholds have been exceeded, if no reports are received from a covered facility both the owner and the operator are liable for penalties.</div></b><div style="visibility:hidden"></div></b>-

Company A purchases a facility from Company B between January 1 and June 30, of the same year. For the reporting forms covering the prior year, which company’s name and identification number should appear on the Form R or Form A submission?In the case that a facility is purchased between January 1 and June 30, the form submitted for the previous year must reflect the name used by the facility on December 31 of that reporting year (Monthly Call Center Report Question, EPA530-R-98-005; October 1998). In this example, Company B’s name should appear on the form because it owned the facility for the duration of the reporting year. The TRI identification number is location-specific; thus, the identification number will stay the same even if the facility changes names, production processes, or NAICS codes. With regard to reporting, the owner or operator of the facility on the annual July 1 reporting deadline (Company A) is primarily responsible for reporting the data for the previous year’s operations at that facility. However, all prior owners and operators back to January 1 of the year covered in the report may also be held responsible if the current owner or operator does not submit a report.</div></b><div style="visibility:hidden"></div></b>-

In October, Facility X changes ownership and is purchased by Company Y. For that reporting year, which facility is obligated to submit the Form R or Form A, and whose name and what TRI identification number should be on the form?The owner or operator of the facility on the annual July 1 reporting deadline (i.e., Company Y) is primarily responsible for reporting the data for the entire previous year’s operations at that facility. Any other owner or operator of the facility before the reporting deadline may also be held liable. The form submitted for a given reporting year must reflect the names used by the facility and its parent company on December 31 of that reporting year, even if the facility changed its name or ownership at any time during the reporting year (Monthly Call Center Report Question, EPA530-R-98-005j; October 1998). In this scenario, because Facility X changed ownership before December 31 of the reporting year, Company Y’s name should appear on the form.

The facility consists of a combustion unit and a peaker unit. Company A sells the combustion unit to Company B on June 15 of the reporting year, but retains ownership of the peaker unit. From the time of purchase, Company B owned, controlled, and operated the combustion unit and Company A continued to own and operate the peaker unit. What are the reporting responsibilities of Companies A and B for determining thresholds and filing Form R reports?From the time of the purchase transaction on June 15, there are two separate facilities with two non-related owners and operators. Thus, Company B is responsible only for reporting for the combustion unit after its purchase. Company A is responsible for the combustion unit and the peaker unit prior to sale, but only the peaker unit after the sale. Thus, for threshold determinations, Company A must combine amounts of toxic chemicals manufactured, processed, or otherwise used at the entire facility before the transaction on June 15, with those manufactured, processed, or otherwise used at the peaker unit after the transaction.</div></b><div style="visibility:hidden"></div></b>-

This purchase transaction was finalized January 15. The quarter of the plant that was sold was moved to its new location in April of the same year. During the period between sale and move, the entire facility kept operating. The new owner, however, controlled and operated the sold part of the facility. For purposes of reporting under EPCRA section 313, is the original owner responsible for reporting for the part of the facility that was sold?From the time of the purchase transaction on January 15, there are two separate facilities with two non-related owners and separate operators. Therefore, the original owner must report on the three quarters of the facility retained after the sale if he manufactured, processed, or otherwise used a toxic chemical equal to or in excess of a threshold amount for that year. The original owner, however, would also include in threshold determinations and release and other waste management calculations any activities that went on from the beginning of January up to the time of the purchase transaction (January 15) for that part of the facility that was sold. The owner of the quarter of the original facility also must report if that new facility exceeds the reporting threshold during the period of January 15 through April. Once the facility is moved to its new location, a new threshold determination must be made for the remainder of the reporting year and the facility would be assigned a new TRI Identification number.</div></b><div style="visibility:hidden"></div></b>-

Does EPA offer any training for TRI reporting compliance?EPA has created several trainings that owners or operators of facilities can utilize to gain a basic understanding of TRI applicability and reporting requirements. The basic concepts course will assist an owner or operator in determining whether the facility is covered by EPCRA section 313, and, if it is, for which chemicals the facility must submit a TRI report. The advanced concepts course covers complex issues related to threshold determinations, TRI reporting, and exemptions; reporting for PBTs; and information on chemicals with special TRI reporting considerations (e.g., hydrochloric and sulfuric acid aerosols, ammonia, or metal compounds). These training resources are available as online modules, PowerPoint slides, or PDF slides. Training materials and additional information are available at the following URL: https://www.epa.gov/toxics-release-inventory-tri-program/reporting-tri-facilities.

If a federal facility’s primary NAICS code is not among the covered NAICS codes, there currently is no regulatory mechanism to ensure that this information is received by the purchasing facility. One mechanism for ensuring that suppliers identify EPCRA section 313 chemicals present in mixtures and trade name products and provide concentration information is for the federal facilities to request this type of information from their suppliers, revise existing contracts with suppliers to require this information, or ensure this information is required to be provided in any new contracts with suppliers.</div></b><div style="visibility:hidden"></div></b>Y
