The Tier II reporting period will open on January 1st. We encourage all facilities to file early to ensure ample time to complete the required report. Your Tier II Report will not be completed until all filing fees have been paid. Payments will be accepted using Visa, MasterCard, or electronic check (Check).
Note that the reports for EPCRA Section 311 chemical inventory are accepted throughout the year and are required when a facility brings a new chemical on-site in an amount exceeding a threshold quantity. When you log in to submit a new Section 311 report, you will notice that the chemical information on your Tier II report is locked after filing. To unlock your chemical information and submit a new Section 311 report, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request your filing be unlocked. Within three business days, your filing will be unlocked and you will be able to add the new chemical(s) to your record. There is no fee for Section 311 chemical inventory reports.
