NJ DEP Bureau of Air Quality Planning NJ Emission Statement Program
The Emission Statement rule (N.J.A.C. 7:27-21) establishes requirements for the annual reporting of air contaminant emissions from stationary sources. NJDEP requires emission data from all facilities that emit or have the Potential to Emit greater than or equal to the following thresholds:
- 5 tons per year of Pb
- 10 tons per year of VOC
- 25 tons per year of NOx
- 100 tons per year of any of the following -- CO, NH3, PM2.5, PM10, SO2, or TSP
A facility's Potential to Emit is determined for each air contaminant by totaling the following:
- All allowable emissions from permitted sources
- The emissions from all non-permitted sources operating at maximum capacity and assuming that the source operates for 8,760 hours per year; and
- All maximum fugitive emissions.
The purpose of the IUR program is to collect quality screening-level, exposure-related information on chemical substances and to make that information available for use by EPA and, to the public. The IUR regulation requires manufacturers and importers of certain chemical substances included on the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory to report site and manufacturing information for chemicals manufactured (including imported) in amounts of 25,000 pounds or greater at a single site. Additional information on domestic processing and use must be reported for chemicals manufactured in amounts of 300,000 pounds or more at a single site.
All shippers and transporters of specified categories of hazardous materials must submit an annual - registration statement and payment before July 1 or before engaging in any of the activities requiring registration. This DOT certificate and registration number must be on record prior to shipment or transport of hazardous materials. Registration can be submitted via the internet at the following url: https://hazmatonline.phmsa.dot.gov/services/haz_reg_1.aspx
EPA Toxic Chemical Release Inventory (TRI) Program
1990 Congress passed the Pollution Prevention Act which requires facilities to report additional data on waste management and source reduction activities to EPA under TRI. The goal of the Toxics Release Inventory Program is to provide communities with information about toxic chemical releases and waste management activities and to support informed decision making at all levels by industry, government, non-governmental organizations, and the public. The Toxics Release Inventory Program compiles the TRI data submitted by regulated facilities each year and makes the data available through the Data and Tools webpages.

NJ DEP Pollution Prevention and Right to Know Programs
Employers who have chemicals listed on the Environmental Hazardous Substance (EHS) list in quantities that exceed 500 pounds at any given time during 2010, are required to complete and submit an annual Community Right to Know Survey. In addition, substances on the federal list of extremely hazardous substances must be reported if they are present at the designated threshold (usually less than 500 pounds), as well as any chemical requiring a Material Safety Data Sheet that is present on site in quantities that exceed 10,000 pounds. This is required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Employers are required to complete and submit the survey by March 1, 2011.
The survey must be submitted to the state environmental protection agency (such as the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection), and copies sent to the Local Emergency Planning Commission, local police and fire departments, and the local hospital.
The New Jersey medical waste regulations require all medical waste generators, transporters, intermediate handlers and destination facilities to track RMW, no matter how small the amount generated. All generators of RMW must complete and submit an Annual Generator Report (forms are provided by the NJDEP) to the Department for the period of June 22 through June 21 of each calendar year by July 21 of each calendar year.
