EPCRA: Tier II Reports & Emergency Release Notifications

The Emergency Planning and Community and Community Right to Know Act (known as EPCRA or SARA Title III) requires you to inform your community and notify emergency responders about the chemicals at your facility.  Although the requirements of this law could be daunting, if you don’t comply, emergency responders in your community might not have the information that they need to assist you in the event of an emergency.

The law doesn’t just apply to large facilities.  Common items such as forklift batteries, paint, and cleaners are subject to its reporting requirements.


Now, you can learn everything you need to know about EPA’s Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Form (Tier II report) at Environmental Resource Center’s interactive online training:

  • What types of chemicals must be reported
  • How some articles are exempt from reporting, but others are not
  • The different reporting thresholds
  • When to provide the name of your emergency coordinator to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)
  • What releases trigger immediate notifications and written reports, and how to meet these requirements
  • When you must submit safety data sheets or chemical lists to the LEPC, state, and fire department
  • How to calculate and report inventories of solids, liquids, gases, and mixtures
  • How to complete and submit Tier II reports

You can complete the training anytime when it's convenient for you. Interactive exercises and quizzes help you learn and retain the information that you need to know.  And, Environmental Resource Center’s Answerline™ is available at no charge for any questions you have during or after the training – for up to one year.
