Can I use the TRI-MEweb application if I have my own TRI software?
Some facilities have their own software or use private software to assist in collecting chemical release data that must be reported under EPCRA Section 313. This "third party software" is often designed to produce output data files that match EPA's electronic data structure specifications. In past versions of the suite of TRI-ME software, the file format consisted of 18 magnetic media flat files, which made uploading the file type burdensome. These third-party files contain data from numerous chemical releases that may be present at a single facility. Uploading these data files reduces the facility's burden by automating the data entry into the TRI-ME software. However, a more versatile file format is now being used, extensible markup language (XML). The TRI-MEweb application began accepting valid third party XML files from third party vendors in RY 2009.
In order to use this new feature, facilities will need to create third party data files that are valid against the TRI XML Schema .
