Submission of Tier II reports is required under Section 312 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). The purpose of this report is to provide State, local officials, and the public with specific information on potential hazards. This includes the locations, as well as the amount, of hazardous chemicals present at your facility during the previous calendar year.
Per Federal Law, facilities covered by requirements must submit an Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Report to 1) the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), 2) the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), and the local fire department annually.
Owners or operators of facilities that have hazardous chemicals on hand in quantities equal to or greater than set threshold levels must submit Tier 2 forms between January 1 and March 1 for the previous calendar year.
