The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Rockford Corp., a Tempe electronics company at 546 S. Rockford Drive, have reached a $46,300 settlement agreement over the company's reported failure to submit toxic chemical reports as required by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act.

The violation is the result of Rockford's failure to submit timely, complete and correct reports detailing the amount of lead compounds processed at its plant from 2002 through 2004, according to the EPA.

The EPA said Rockford did not release lead compounds into the environment; however, it violated the law by not submitting reports.
