Estimated releases outside notification

“Estimated Releases Outside Notification” includes the released amount data from non-point sources (diffuse sources) such as the businesses that are small in size or handled amount (i.e., not meeting reporting requirements), non-listed industries, households, and mobile sources. By gaining the cooperation of the relevant administrative agencies, the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Minister of the Environment calculate the “Estimated Releases Outside Notification” (i.e., estimation of the released amounts other than those of Class I Designated Chemical Substances notified by reporting business operators) for each respective category described below.
