    This table is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather provides a 
guide for readers regarding entities likely to find this notice of 
training course offerings applicable. Other types of entities not 
listed in the table may also find this notice applicable. To determine 
whether your facility could find this notice applicable, you should 
carefully examine the applicability criteria in part 372 subpart B of 
Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations. If you have questions 
regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, 
consult the person listed in the preceding FOR FURTHER INFORMATION 
CONTACT section. You may be able to take advantage of the training 
courses if:
    <bullet> Your facility is a facility covered under section 313 of 
the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).
    <bullet> Your facility is a Federal facility that manufactures, 
processes, or otherwise uses section 313 listed toxic chemicals.
    <bullet> You prepare annual release and other waste management 
activity reports (i.e., Form R).
    <bullet> You prepare Form A certification statements.
    <bullet> You are a consultant who assists in the preparation of 
these reports.
    <bullet> You would like information on recent changes to EPCRA/TRI 
regulations.
    EPA conducts annual training courses to assist you with your 
reporting requirements under section 313 of the Emergency Planning and 
Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA) and section 6607 of the 
Pollution Prevention Act of 1990 (PPA) or Executive Order 12856 (for 
Federal facilities). You must submit your annual release and other 
waste management activity reports (i.e., Form R) if your facility meets 
the descriptions for the following Standard Industrial Classification 
(SIC) codes and qualifiers:
    <bullet> Metal Mining (SIC Code 10, except 1011, 1081, and 1094).
    <bullet> Coal Mining (SIC Code 12, except 1241).
    <bullet> Manufacturing (SIC Codes 20-39).
    <bullet> Electricity Generating Facilities (SIC Codes 4911, 4931, 
and 4939-- limited to facilities that combust coal and/or oil for the 
purpose of generating electricity for distribution in commerce).
    <bullet> Hazardous Waste Treatment/TSDF (SIC Code 4953 - limited to 
facilities regulated under RCRA subtitle C, 42 U.S.C. section 6921 et 
seq.).
    <bullet> Chemicals and Allied Products (SIC Code 5169).
    <bullet> Petroleum Bulk Plants and Terminals (SIC Code 5171).
    <bullet> Solvent Recovery (SIC Code 7389 - limited to facilities 
primarily engaged in solvents recovery services on a contract or fee 
basis).
    <bullet> Federal Facilities (by Executive Order 12856).

II. What is Presented at These Training Courses?

    The training courses present reporting requirements of EPCRA 
section 313 and PPA section 6607. A variety of hands-on exercises using 
the reporting forms (i.e., Form R) along with supporting materials will 
be used to help you understand any reporting obligations you might have 
under EPCRA section 313. The training courses are scheduled in the 
spring so that you can prepare and submit your report(s) for the 
Reporting Year 1999 on or before July 1, 2000.

III. How Much Time is Required for the Training?

    The full training course runs 2 days and a schedule for the 2-day 
workshops is provided below (see Table 1 under Unit IV.). The first day 
is devoted to a general discussion of EPCRA section 313 and PPA section 
6607 reporting requirements with exercises used to reinforce key 
concepts. Beginning the second day, an update on the TRI Program will 
begin. Interested persons may register for both days (persons with 
little or no background in EPCRA section 313 and PPA section 6607 
reporting requirements) or just the second day (persons experienced in 
preparing either Form R or Form A). In addition, EPA is conducting 
abbreviated training courses. These courses are 1 day in duration and, 
in some cases, are focused for a particular industry sector(s) (see 
Table 2 under Unit IV.).
