Tribal Receipt of TRI Reports

2011 February 23

Under one potential outcome of the proposed rulemaking, if a facility is located in the Indian country of a Tribe that becomes a member of the internet-based TRI Data Exchange, then that facility could meet its dual EPA/Tribal reporting requirements by submitting its TRI report to EPA via TRI-MEweb (a web-based application that allows facilities to submit a paperless report).  EPA would then automatically transmit the report to the appropriate Tribe via the TRI Data Exchange. 

If the facility is located  in the Indian country of a Tribe that does not become a member of the TRI Data Exchange, or if the facility traditionally submits via paper form, then the facility would be required to submit a TRI report to EPA and also to the appropriate Tribe.
