The US Environmental Protection Agency has recently stepped up its enforcement of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) and associated requirements in several industry sectors.

This Legal Quick Hit will also provide an overview of how to use EPA‰s program for voluntary self-disclosure, which may greatly reduce penalties in the event of non-compliance.
