Tier II Reporting
Tier II Report Forms are due annually by March 1 from facilities meeting the reporting requirements.
SARA Title III was enacted by U.S. Congress in 1986 in response to an incident in India in which 2500 people were killed by a chemical release. The purpose behind SARA Title III/EPCRA has been to create a cooperative relationship among government, business, and the public involving all of them in the effort to prevent, to plan, to prepare for, and to manage chemical emergencies.
This law sets requirements for facilities that manufacture, process, or store certain hazardous or toxic chemicals, of certain threshold level, on-site. They must report annually to the state and local governments any accidental releases on a timely basis. The information submitted by facilities provided the basis for community right-to-know and local emergency planning and preparedness.
Businesses have to report if they store or possess hazardous chemicals in reportable quantities. For more information about Tier II reporting, please go to the following website: http://www.epa.gov/emergencies/content/lawsregs/epcraover.htm
