National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI)
 
Reporting for National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) has become a mandatory requirement since 1992 when it was established to collect data on substances of concern in Canada. Managed by Environment Canada under the legal authority of Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), NPRI currently tracks 341 substances and groups of substances grouped into five different parts. Owners or operators of the facilities that meet criteria must report to Environment Canada by June 1 of each year.

Monitoring and reporting air releases, on and off-site disposals, off-site transfers for recycling can prove to be a very daunting task if you are not sure. Enirovision Inc. assists businesses with National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) reporting in Toronto, GTA, Ontario and all Canada, helping companies to meet their legal requirements while continuing to operate.

What Is NPRI Reporting?

Environment Canada, under the Canadian Environmental Protection act of 1999, is authourized to enforce the mandatory requirement for businesses to report emissions every year. If your business emits any of the 363 substances tracked by Environment Canada, you must report the level of emissions for each substance by June 1st of every year. Each year, the list is updated with the substances that are monitored, and any facility emitting these substances into the air, land, or water, is responsible for tracking this data and reporting.

What Information Is Reported through the NPRI?

NPRI Reporting does not simply consist of compiling a list of which substances are present and how much. The report must also detail how the materials are controlled, whether they are disposed of or transferred, and where they go if they are transferred. The report must also disclose information such as:
  • Pollution prevention strategies used by the facility
  • Industry classification
  • Size of the company (number of employees)
  • Location information for the facility
The purpose of the National Pollutant Release Inventory is to identify and track all sources of pollution in Canada in order to monitor and improve pollution control efforts. The information in the report is made public and provides great motivation for organizations to reduce any harmful emissions.

The information contained with the NPRI is also used by data analysts, governments, and industry leaders to monitor pollution trends and their impacts, and to set new standards.

Completing Your NPRI Reporting

As a facility that produces emissions, it is your duty to provide all of the required information to Environment Canada each year. This is where the specialists at Envirovision Inc. can provide valuable assistance. Our team can first help you identify and measure all of the tracked substances being handled by your businesses. In addition to documenting the current state of pollutants controlled by your facility, we can also help you develop a pollution reduction strategy for the future. We can help you create and put into action a plan for improving the safety of your facility and reducing your emissions, which bodes well for the environment, your employees, your community, and your reputation.
 
Ontario Regulation (O. Reg.) 127/01 – Airborne Contaminant Discharge and Reporting
 
In addition to the NPRI reporting, Ontario Regulation 127/01 (made under the Environmental Protection Act) “requires Ontario-based facilities that emit certain quantities of specific substances to report their emissions to the government. These emissions reports must also be made available to the public”. The reporting time-line and requirements is being done through NPRI and made public since 2005.

If you are interested in learning more about how Enviovision can assist you with NPRI and O. Reg. 127/01 reporting in Toronto and all Ontario, contact us to arrange a consultation. We are happy to discuss your options.
 
Environmental and Disclosure for Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 423 (Chemtrac)
 
Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw (Municipal Code Chapter 423), Chemtrac is City of Toronto’s Health Program designed to track the usage of 25 priority substances that are proved to have raised health concerns. Developed between 2005 and 2008, Chemtrac became mandatory in 2011 for many types of industries operating in Toronto (automotive, dry cleaning, wood industry, crematorium, etc.); since then, facilities must be completed every year by June 30.
 
Toxics Reduction Act, O. Reg. 455/09
 
The purpose of the Act is to reduce the use, creation and release of toxic substances through mandatory reporting and voluntary reduction. Ontario’s Toxics Reduction Strategy focuses on reducing the creation and usage of certain substances by requiring industry to develop plans along with making plan summaries available to public.

For toxic substances labeled as “priority” in the TRA, a report was due by June 1, 2011, for the calendar year 2010. Facilities were required to develop their toxic substance reduction plan by December 31, 2011. Facilities that use or create a substance listed in the NPRI, but is NOT listed as a priority substance, were required to provide their first report to the MOE by June 1, 2013, covering the calendar year 2012. Summaries of the plan must be made available to the MOE and the public by December 31, 2013. Summaries must be signed by the highest ranking authority and a Certified Planner.
