Release Reporting

Release reporting is not something to get wrong.  Whether in the heat of an emergency or complying with ongoing reporting obligations, the stakes are high—regulators and the public are deeply concerned about releases.  ELG attorneys have experience across the range of reporting issues, from crafting guidance to assisting with initial reports to advising on Toxic Release Inventory submittals.

We understand there is a premium on getting it right during an event as well as making sure all facility stakeholders have an accurate understanding of a facility’s true footprint.

ELG can help with all aspects of release reporting.
