|Category||Examples of regulated entities|
|Industry||Metal mining, Coal mining, Manufacturing, Electricity generating facilities, Hazardous waste treatment/TSDF, Chemicals and allied products-wholesale, Petroleum bulk plants and terminals, and Solvent recovery services.|
|Federal Government||Federal facilities.|
This table is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather provides a guide for readers regarding entities likely to find this notice of training course offerings applicable. Other types of entities not listed in the table may also find this notice applicable. To determine whether your facility could find this notice applicable, you should carefully examine the applicability criteria in part 372 subpart B of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. If you have questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed in the preceding “FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT” section.

your facility is a federal facility that manufactures, processes, or otherwise uses section 313 listed toxic chemicals;
you prepare annual release and other waste management activity reports (i.e., Form R or Form A);
you are a consultant who assists in the preparation of these reports; or
you would like information on recent changes to EPCRA/TRI regulations
The EPA conducts annual training courses to assist you with your reporting requirements under section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA) and section 6607 of the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990 (PPA) or Executive Order 13148 (for federal facilities). You must submit your annual release and other waste management activity reports (i.e., Form R or Form A) if your facility meets the descriptions for the following Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes and qualifiers, and meets other criteria specified in part 372 of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations:
Metal Mining (SIC Code 10, except 1011, 1081, and 1094);
Coal Mining (SIC Code 12, except 1241);
Manufacturing (SIC Codes 20-39)
Electricity Generating Facilities (SIC Codes 4911, 4931, and 4939—limited to facilities that combust coal and/or oil for the purpose of generating electricity for distribution in commerce);

B. What is Presented at these Training Courses?
The training courses present reporting requirements of EPCRA section 313 and PPA section 6607. A variety of hands-on exercises using the reporting forms (i.e., Form R or Form A) along with supporting materials will be used to help you understand any reporting obligations you might have under EPCRA section 313. The training courses are scheduled in the spring so that you can prepare and submit your report(s) for the Reporting Year 2000, forms due on or before July 1, 2001.
C. How Much Time is Required for the Training?
The full training course runs two days and a schedule for the 2-day workshops is provided below (see Table 1). The course is divided into three modules. The first module encompasses the first day and is devoted to a general discussion of EPCRA section 313 and PPA section 6607 reporting requirements with exercises used to reinforce key concepts. The second module is given in the morning of the second day, and is designed to provide detailed information about the persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemicals within the TRI program. The third and final module is Start Printed Page 12783given in the afternoon of the second day, and this module is designed to provide an update to the TRI program and information about difficult policy topics. Interested persons may register for both days (persons with little or no background in EPCRA section 313 and PPA section 6607 reporting requirements) or just the second day (persons experienced in preparing either Form R or Form A). In addition, EPA is conducting abbreviated training courses. These courses are one day in duration and, in some cases, are focused for a particular industry sector(s) (see Table 2).
