Tier II Reporting for Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act
The Tier II reporting requirements of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-know Act (EPCRA) require facilities that store or use certain hazardous chemicals to report their inventory to state and local emergency planning committees (LEPCs), the state environmental agency, and local fire safety departments.
EPCRA is a federal law that was passed in 1986 to provide the public with information about chemicals present in their communities. One key requirement of EPCRA is the Tier II reporting, which requires facilities that store or use certain hazardous chemicals to report their inventory to state and LEPCs.
Under the Tier II reporting requirements, facilities that store or use hazardous chemicals above a certain threshold are required to submit an annual inventory of those chemicals to the LEPCs. This inventory must include the chemical name, the maximum amount of the chemical present at the facility at any time during the year, and the location of the chemical within the facility.
The purpose of the Tier II reporting requirements is to provide emergency responders with information about the hazardous chemicals that are present in their communities. This information can help emergency responders plan for and respond to chemical emergencies, such as spills or leaks.
In addition to the annual inventory, facilities are also required to provide the LEPCs with a copy of their emergency response plan, which must include information on the chemicals present at the facility, emergency procedures, and contact information for emergency responders.
Overall, the Tier II reporting requirements are an important part of the EPCRA law and help ensure that emergency responders have access to critical information about the hazardous chemicals in their communities. This helps protect the public and the environment in the event of a chemical emergency.
