EPA Proposes Adding 12 Chemicals to the TRI List

Today, in support of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the EPA released a proposed rule that would add 12 chemicals to the list of chemicals subject to Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reporting requirements. EPA proposed the rule in response to a 2014 petition by the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) requesting that the agency add certain chemicals to the TRI.

The 12 chemicals are:

  • dibutyltin dichloride; 
  • 1,3-dichloro-2-propanol;
  • formamide;
  • 1,3,4,6,7,8-Hexahydro-4,6,6,7,8,8-hexamethylcyclopenta[g]-2-benzopyran;
  • n-hydroxyethylethylenediamine;
  • nitrilotriacetic acid trisodium salt;
  • p-(1,1,3,3-Tetramethylbutyl)phenol;
  • 1,2,3-trichlorobenzene;
  • triglycidyl isocyanurate;
  • tris(2-chloroethyl) phosphate;
  • tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate; and
  • tris(dimethylphenol) phosphate.

EPA is also proposing that one of the chemicals, 1,3,4,6,7,8-hexahydro-4,6,6,7,8,8-hexamethylcyclopenta [g]-2-benzopyran, be classified as a persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemical and designated as a chemical of special concern with a 100-pound reporting threshold. PBT chemicals remain in the environment for a long time and can build up in the body, posing potential risks for exposed populations.
