With the Community Right-To-Know Manual, you can:
- Efficiently complete the annual Form R and Form A under EPCRA Section 313, as well as provide explanations of EPA’s modifications to the TRI reporting process each year.

- Avoid fines when an emergency strikes by providing proper emergency notification under EPCRA Section 304 and CERCLA.
- Keep your routine filings required under EPCRA Section 311 and 312 on track with material safety data sheets (MSDSs) and Tier I and Tier II inventory forms.
- Stay up-to-date with state information, including contact information for officials in all 50 states.
