Tier II Report Due March 1, 2017: How to File Properly, Stay Compliant and Avoid Penalties - On-Demand
Webinar now available On-Demand.
Alert: The deadline to file your Tier II report is March 1, 2017 and, if not filed on time, it could subject you to enforcement actions including significant penalties.
Tier II reports, more officially known as Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Forms, are required to be submitted annually to local fire departments, Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) and State Emergency Response Commissions (SERCs) under Section 312 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). The purpose of Tier II reports is to provide these agencies with specific information on hazardous chemicals stored at facilities so that they can prepare for and respond to any chemical emergency that may occur.
