Does my facility need to submit a paper TRI form to my state or tribal authority?
Facilities that use TRI-MEweb and reside in a state or tribal country participating in the TRI Data Exchange (TDX) will have their forms sent simultaneously to EPA and their respective state via the Central Data Exchange (CDX). TRI-MEweb will automatically determine if your facility resides in a TDX member state. There is currently no tribal countries participating in TDX in RY 2012.
Please be aware that if your facility does not reside in a state participating in the TDX, submitting your TRI forms via the Internet using TRI-MEweb only partially meets your reporting requirement. A hard-copy TRI form(s) must be mailed to you State TRI program. TRI-MEweb can assist you in preparing the hard-copy materials containing your TRI data that you can submit to your state separately and in the required format specified by your state (i.e., diskette, paper, or CD).
Most Indian Country entities are not members of TDX in RY 2012. Facilities located within Indian Country boundaries should send a hard-copy of their TRI forms to the Chief Executive Officer of the applicable Indian tribe to fulfill their federal and tribal reporting requirements under EPCRA Section 313. Some tribes have entered into a cooperative agreement with states; in this case, report submissions should be sent to the entity designated in the cooperative agreement.
If you have any questions about the TRI-MEweb submission process, please contact the CDX Hotline at firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free: 1-888-890-1995.
