Next steps for Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) Online Planning

  1. What to Know

    A Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) Plan is a document that provides both economic and technical evaluations of the toxics use reduction opportunities available to a company, and identifies those methods, if any, that the company intends to implement.

    The company is not obligated to submit the plan itself to the Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), but is required to obtain approval of the plan from a MassDEP-certified TUR Planner and provide the agency with a summary that includes a signed plan certification statement.

    Once a company has completed an initial toxics use reduction plan and two plan updates, it can develop a resource conservation plan addressing water, energy, or materials use (allowed every other planning cycle) or implement an environmental management system (EMS) in lieu of a TUR plan provided the EMS addresses toxics.

    Failing to file annual reports, develop plans or pay toxics use fees can result in MassDEP enforcement action, including financial penalties.
