Expected Benefits of using TRI-MEweb
TRI-MEweb includes a number of data entry and validation features that help facilities prepare and submit accurate TRI data more easily and efficiently. In addition, facilities that have previously used TRI-MEweb can compare their most recent year’s data to the prior year’s data, which may help them identify potential data errors. In addition, the submission of electronic TRI reports using TRI-MEweb helps EPA process and make the data available to the public soon after the July 1st reporting deadline, since the data have already undergone a number of data quality checks in TRI-MEweb and EPA does not have to enter the data manually into the TRI database. EPA would be interested in hearing about facilities’ experiences in using TRI-MEweb – particularly any benefits they have experienced by using TRI-MEweb.
