Toxics Reduction Act Audit

The Toxics Reduction Act requires a facility to review its use of certain substances. A toxic substance under the Act is defined as those substances that are reported to the NPRI (National Pollutant Release Inventory).

Steps include:

  • An assessment of the use of each toxic substance.  This involves the use, creation, destruction and process flow of each toxic substance
  • Determining if there are any options for reduction. 
  •  Voluntarily deciding whether or not to implement the reduction options.  It is important to note that although the implementation of reduction options is voluntary, the completion of Reduction Plans is not.
