The National Library of Medicine® (NLM) TOXNET TRI has been updated.

Support for EPA TRI Form A submissions has been added:

The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI), a resource of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is a set of publicly available databases containing information on releases of specific toxic chemicals and their management as waste, as reported annually by U.S. industrial and federal facilities. This inventory was established under the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). TRI's data, beginning with the 1987 reporting year, covers air, water, land, and underground injection releases, as well as transfers to waste sites. In agreement with the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990, source reduction and recycling data is also included in TRI.

The Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP) in the Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) of the National Library of Medicine provides access to TRI as part of its TOXNET (TOXicology Data NETwork) databases, which cover toxicology, hazardous chemicals, environmental health and related areas.
