The EPCRA program works closely with the State Emergency Response Commission and its member local emergency planning committees to enhance state and local emergency response and preparedness capabilities.
Within DNREC, the EPCRA program is responsible for the collection and dissemination of information reported under the federal and state Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Acts (EPCRA). These include a number of reporting requirements for businesses, covering information on the storage, use and release of hazardous and toxic chemicals.
Hazardous chemical inventory and related information are entered into a computer system for distribution to emergency planning and response organizations statewide. Toxics Release Inventory data is also computerized, and annual reports prepared and released to the public.
