What is the EPCRA Right-to-Know Act?

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1966 was created to help communities plan for chemical emergencies. It also requires industry to report on the storage, use and releases of hazardous substances to federal, state, and local governments. EPCRA requires state and local governments, and Indian tribes to use this information to prepare for and protect their communities from potential risks. https://www.epa.gov/epcra https://www.epa.gov/epcra/what-epcra
