Location of PRTR sites and facilities that the EPA must report under the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) if a facility fulfils the following criteria: - the facility falls under at least one of the 65 E-PRTR economic activities. The activities are also reported using a statistical classification of economic activities (NACE rev 2) - the facility has a capacity exceeding at least one of the E-PRTR capacity thresholds (Annex I) - the facility releases pollutants or transfers waste off-site which exceed specific thresholds set out in Article 5 of the E-PRTR Regulation. These thresholds for releases of pollutants are specified for each media - air, water and land - in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation.

Provenance information The European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) supersedes the European Pollutant Emission Register (EPER). EPER was the first European-wide register of industrial emissions into air and water, which was established by a Commission Decision of 17 July 2000 (EPER Decision). Under EPER, Member States reported data for the years 2001 and 2004. E-PRTR builds on the same principles as EPER but goes beyond it, by including reporting on more pollutants from more activities, and includes releases to land, releases from diffuse sources and off-site transfers of wastes and effluents.
