New reporting requirements in Toronto

The city of Toronto has issued new reporting requirements for chemical releases to take effect in 2010. I have highlighted parts of this Globe and Mail article which summarizes the changes pretty well.

The thrust of the by-law is a lowering of reporting thresholds to 100 kg, placing many small and medium businesses within the reporting requirements. We will be issuing a more detailed bulletin within the site to better help you understand this requirement.

To get you started here is a guide to understanding the “right to know” by-law, the information posted is till in draft form so will likely change in the weeks to come, we will keep you posted.
