The training courses present reporting requirements of EPCRA section 313 and PPA section 6607. A variety of handson 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 2day
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
given 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).
