On October 17, 1986, in response to a growing concern for safety around chemical facilities, Congress enacted the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA), also known as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA).
The Act has had a far-reaching influence on issues relating to hazardous materials. EPCRA is the federal law that gives citizens the Right-to-Know about chemicals stored in our communities and the risks they pose.
