Purpose

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) was enacted in 1986 as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (EPCRA 001, 42 USC ยงยง11001-11050). Despite its origin, the EPCRA is not a part of the Comprehensive Environmental Compensation and Liability Act but rather is an individual federal statute. The EPCRA provides for the gathering and dissemination of information on local industries' use of hazardous substances. It also provides for local community planning to deal with potential chemical-related emergencies, such as the accidental release of methyl isocyanate in Bhopal, India in 1984.
