- Toxics Use Reduction Program Reporting Amnesty
Through June 30, 2016, MassDEP will accept past due Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) annual chemical use reports from companies that voluntarily disclose their failure to file in compliance with the law. Those taking advantage of the amnesty program will receive only a “warning letter” and be required to pay just one year of past-due chemical use and administrative late fees.
- About TURA Reporting & Fees
Each company considered a Large Quantity Toxics User is required to file an annual toxics use report for every listed chemical it manufactures, processes or otherwise uses above applicable thresholds. Companies subject to TURA are required to pay annual toxics fees.
