The Emergency Planning & Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) was passed by Congress as part of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA). As a result, EPCRA is also referred to as SARA Title III. The act created a program with two basic goals: 1) to increase public knowledge of and access to information on the presence of toxic chemicals in communities, releases of toxic chemicals into the environment, and waste management activities involving toxic chemicals; and 2) to encourage and support planning for responding to environmental emergencies.
To fulfill these goals, EPCRA created the Toxics Release Inventory or TRI and the hazardous chemical inventory. This information enables State and local governments and the community to identify what needs to be done at the local level to better deal with pollution and chemical emergencies.
