Internet Available for All TRI Data Reporting
For the first time since the inception of the Toxics Release Inventory, all facilities required to submit data will be able to do so over the Internet, using TRI-ME software. The Internet system has quality checks built into the software, which will improve data quality.
This year, companies are required to submit calendar year 2007 data to TRI by July 1, 2008. Facilities will be able to use the Internet to send information directly to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through its Central Data Exchange. The TRI-ME software was launched for 2001 TRI reports and moved exclusively to compact discs for 2005 reports. For 2006 reports, in addition to the compact disc, an on-line version was offered in states participating in the TRI State Data Exchange.
