File Your 2016 Triennial Mercury-added Product Notifications Now
The deadline for companies to file their 2016 Mercury-Added Product Triennial Notifications was April 1, 2017.   Most mercury-added product notifiers have submitted their forms; however, some have not  and are considered to be out-of-compliance. Failure to comply with the requirements may result in non-notifiers being referred for enforcement. 
To ensure continued compliance, companies should file their 2016 Triennial notification forms through the IMERC e-filing system as soon as possible.

Guidance for filing online, including a User Guide and recording from the latest online training demonstration are available at:  www.newmoa.org/prevention/mercury/imerc/efiling.cfm

Please contact Rachel Smith if you need further assistance.
Notification through the e-filing system enables companies to comply with the Mercury-added Product Notification and Labeling requirements of Connecticut, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota (labeling only), New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington (labeling only). Reporting is required for any company that sold or distributed mercury-added products into the states listed above during calendar year 2016.

Note: Due to the large number of submissions expected during this reporting period, it may take the states several months to review and approve your company's report. Supporting Members will be given priority in the review sequence.
International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant
