SARA Title III (EPCRA) - Reporting Chemicals for Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) was passed by Congress in 1986.  EPCRA was included as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) and is usually referred to as SARA Title III.  EPCRA provides for the collection and access to information regarding the use, storage, production, and release of hazardous chemicals, thereby helping to inform emergency planners/responders and the public.  States and communities, working with facilities, can use this information to improve emergency planning, chemical safety and protect public health and the environment.
