SREA Reports Open Season Begins April 3

This year's "Open Season" for ordering SREA reports will open this Monday, April 3, 2017, and will last until May 31, 2017. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to order your 2017 SREA reports.

Taking reasonable care will help protect your business from Superfund liability.

The Superfund Recycling Equity Act ("SREA") helps to protect scrap processors and brokers from liability if their consumers' facilities become a Superfund site. However, SREA requires recyclers to take certain affirmative actions to qualify for the SREA defense—one component is conducting due diligence on the environmental compliance of your consumers' facilities.

ISRI makes it easier for members to get part of the reasonable care due diligence required for the SREA defense through its member-only SREA Reasonable Care Compliance Program. ISRI utilizes the environmental expertise of URS Corporation and one of the largest regulatory environmental databases in the nation to provide members with affordable reports on the environmental compliance of consuming facilities. These reports include publicly available, comprehensive environmental compliance information compiled from more than 1,200 federal, state, and local databases; FOIA requests; and facility questionnaires. It also includes supporting back-up data for the information in the report.

Most SREA Reports are made available to ISRI members for an association funded rate of $35.00 as demand allows.

Due to budget restrictions, ISRI can only make a certain number of reports available at this discounted rate of $35.00. After the order period ends, a computer logarithm is used to determine which reports are priced at the reduced rate. All other reports, deemed unique reports, are priced at $300.00 each. ISRI members will be notified of the cost of each of the reports ordered, but prior to being charged, once open season ends and the orders per site have been calculated. There is no obligation for members to purchase any of reports that were ordered during open season.

ISRI has consulted with numerous environmental consultants, legal professionals, and the ISRI Board to try and determine what would be reasonable for the court to require you make inquiry at least every 12 months. As such, it is essential for you to request updated SREA reports annually.

Beginning April 3, you may visit the ISRI Website to process your orders.
