Note: Reporting year (RY) 2014 is the most recent TRI data available. Facilities reporting to TRI were required to submit RY 2014 data to EPA by July 1, 2015. TRI Explorer is using an updated data set (released to the public in March 2016). This dataset includes revisions for the years 1988 to 2014 processed by EPA, after the National Analysis Dataset was released. Revisions submitted to EPA after this time are not reflected in TRI Explorer reports. TRI data may also be obtained through EPA Envirofacts.

Users of TRI information should be aware that TRI data reflect releases and other waste management activities of chemicals, not whether (or to what degree) the public has been exposed to those chemicals. Release estimates alone are not sufficient to determine exposure or to calculate potential adverse effects on human health and the environment. TRI data, in conjunction with other information, can be used as a starting point in evaluating exposures that may result from releases and other waste management activities which involve toxic chemicals. The determination of potential risk depends upon many factors, including the toxicity of the chemical, the fate of the chemical, and the amount and duration of human or other exposure to the chemical after it is released.

The "1991 core chemicals" include only chemicals that were reported in all years beginning from 1991. These tables do not include, for example, chemicals added since 1991 or chemicals delisted in any year. Because reporting definitions for ammonia, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and vanadium have changed and reporting requirements for previously listed PBTs have changed, these chemicals are also not included in the report.

Comparisons are made only for chemicals that were reportable with the same definition in the years from 1991 to 2009.

The trend report for '1991 core chemicals' includes only chemicals that were reported in all years beginning from 1991. These tables do not include, for example, chemicals added since 1991 or chemicals delisted in any year. Because reporting definitions for ammonia, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and vanadium have changed and reporting requirements for previously listed PBTs have changed, these chemicals are also not included in the report.

On-site Disposal or Other Releases include Underground Injection to Class I Wells (Section 5.4.1), RCRA Subtitle C Landfills (5.5.1A), Other Landfills (5.5.1B), Fugitive or Non-point Air Emissions (5.1), Stack or Point Air Emissions (5.2), Surface Water Discharges (5.3), Underground Injection to Class II-V Wells (5.4.2), Land Treatment/Application Farming (5.5.2), RCRA Subtitle C Surface Impoundments (5.5.3A), Other Surface Impoundments (5.5.3B), and Other Land Disposal (5.5.4). Off-site Disposal or Other Releases include from Section 6.2 Class I Underground Injection Wells (M81), Class II-V Underground Injection Wells (M82, M71), RCRA Subtitle C Landfills (M65), Other Landfills (M64, M72), Storage Only (M10), Solidification/Stabilization - Metals and Metal Category Compounds only (M41 or M40), Wastewater Treatment (excluding POTWs) - Metals and Metal Category Compounds only (M62 or M61), RCRA Subtitle C Surface Impoundments (M66), Other Surface Impoundments (M67, M63), Land Treatment (M73), Other Land Disposal (M79), Other Off-site Management (M90), Transfers to Waste Broker - Disposal (M94, M91), and Unknown (M99) and, from Section 6.1 Transfers to POTWs (metals and metal category compounds only).

For purposes of analysis, data reported as Range Code A is calculated using a value of 5 pounds, Range Code B is calculated using a value of 250 pounds and Range Code C is calculated using a value of 750 pounds.

Beginning with the 2006 reporting year, the industry classification code is the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), which has replaced the 1997 US Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code. The primary NAICS code as reported by the facility is now used for all analysis purposes for all reporting years 2006 and later. For reporting years prior to 2006, EPA has assigned a primary NAICS code based on the SIC codes as reported for those years for the purpose of analyzing trends.

A decimal point, or "." denotes the following: if "NA" is reported across an entire row, the facility submitted a Form A (i.e., the facility certified that its total annual reportable amount is less than 500 pounds, and does not manufacture, process, or otherwise use more than 1 million pounds); or if a decimal point is reported in a single column, the facility left that particular cell blank in its Form R submission (a zero in a cell denotes either that the facility reported "0" or "NA" in its Form R submission). A decimal point is reported in the following columns because the element was not required to be reported for that year (the Form R has been changed over the years to require more detailed reporting for some media): Underground Injection Class I, Underground Injection Class II-V, RCRA Subtitle C Landfills and Other Landfills for the years 1988 to 1995; Off-Site Disposal - RCRA Subtitle C Landfills, Off-Site Disposal - Other Landfills and Off-Site Disposal - Surface Impoundments for the years 1988 to 2001; Other RCRA Subtitle C Surface Impoundments, Other Surface Impoundments, Off-Site Underground Injection Class I Wells, Off-Site Underground Injection Class II-V Wells, Off-Site Disposal - RCRA Subtitle C Surface Impoundments and Off-Site Disposal - Other Surface Impoundments for the years 1988 to 2002.
