Current status of hydrogen sulfide administrative stay

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) was originally added to the list of TRI covered chemicals in 1993; however, dating back to 1994, there has been an administrative stay for reporting hydrogen sulfide under EPCRA §313. What is the current status of the administrative stay on EPCRA §313 reporting requirements for hydrogen sulfide?

Hydrogen sulfide is included on the TRI list of chemicals reportable under EPCRA section 313 (40 CFR Part 372, Subpart D). Beginning with the 2012 reporting year (reports due July 1, 2013), the Administrative Stay is lifted and facilities are required to submit TRI reports for hydrogen sulfide.
