EPA Considers Adding PFAS to Toxics Release Inventory
On Monday, November 25, 2019 the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) made available to the public the pre-publication version of an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to add certain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Chemical List. EPA is asking for public comment on the proposal for 60 days following publication in the Federal Register at docket EPA-HQ-TRI-2019-0375. EPA will use public comments and information received in response to this ANPRM to determine whether data and information are available to fulfill the TRI chemical listing criteria and to help evaluate the extent and usefulness of the data that would be gathered under TRI.
