The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing the extension of the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reporting requirements to certain contract sterilization facilities under its discretionary authority through the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). Pursuant to this authority, EPA decided to extend the reporting requirements for ethylene oxide releases and other waste management activities to 29 contract sterilization facilities; and to extend the reporting requirements for ethylene glycol to 16 of those facilities. EPA is applying this discretionary authority in response to concerns over potential health effects of ethylene oxide exposure and in support of the public's right-to-know.
