Toxics Release Inventory (TRI)
The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) contains information concerning waste management activities and the release of over 600 toxic chemicals by facilities that manufacture, process, or otherwise use such materials. Using this information, citizens, businesses, and governments can work together to protect the quality of their land, air and water.

MSDS's will usually report if a compound appears in the TRI list. TRI applies to companies that utilize 25,000 pounds of the approximately 600 designated chemicals or 28 chemical categories specified in the regulations, or uses more than 10,000 pounds of any designated chemical or category. TRI information is not equivalent to an MSDS, but does provide useful information for people concerned about the presence (or potential presence) of chemicals in their community or environment.
