Question # 748

748. Facilities that use TRI-MEweb, submit their TRI forms through the Internet via the Central Data Exchange (CDX), and are located in a state participating in the TRI Data Exchange (TDX) will have their TRI forms sent simultaneously to EPA and their state officials via the Environmental Information Exchange Network. Which states are currently participating in the TRI Data Exchange?
TRI-MEweb will inform users whether their state or tribe is participating in the TRI Data Exchange or whether they must submit their forms to their state separately (e.g., diskette, paper submission). However, TRI-MEweb will not inform that user of the preferred method of submissions for filers in states that do not participate in TRI Data Exchange. A filer will need to contact their state directly (https://www.epa.gov/toxics-release-inventory-tri-program/tri-state-contacts) to determine the preferred method of submission for states or tribes that do not participate in TRI Data Exchange. A filer may check to see if their state or tribe is in the TRI Data Exchange by going to https://www.epa.gov/toxics-release-inventory-tri-program/tri-data-exchange. If additional states or tribes join the TRI Data Exchange, TRI-MEweb will be updated accordingly, and facilities located in those states will also have their forms submitted automatically to their state officials via the Internet Note that for submissions, revisions, and withdrawals for Reporting Year 1991 through Reporting Year 2004, all facilities, including those residing in states participating in the TDX, must report to their states separately in the required format specified by the state (e.g., diskette, paper). TRI-MEweb will not electronically transmit forms for these reporting years to state officials.
