The Tier II Chemical Reporting Program’s mission is to protect the public health and environment by providing current and accurate information about hazardous chemicals and their health effects and by ensuring that regulated entities comply with the requirements of the applicable environmental laws and regulations.
Facilities governed by the Emergency Planning & Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requirements must submit a hazardous chemical inventory to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), and the local fire department annually. Chemicals that are stored above specific weight thresholds that are not exempted under the EPCRA regulations must be included in the chemical inventory. The weight threshold is 10,000 pounds for regulated hazardous chemicals stored at the facility and varies for other extremely hazardous substances. Tier II reports must include the required information for each listed hazardous chemical present at a facility in quantities equal to or greater than established threshold amounts.
