As countries navigate the process of designing and implementing a Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) programme, they inevitably will encounter questions regarding the implications of PRTR reporting for industry.

Drawing upon experiences in countries with existing PRTR programmes, this document describes actions that have been taken by both government and industry to avoid, address or minimize each of these concerns and provides some practical guidance based on lessons learned.
