Meet the March 1 SARA Tier II Report Deadline
Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) organizations must annually report the storage, use, and release of hazardous substances to federal, state, and local governments. The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) Tier II Report must be filed by March 1.
Did you know that the chemicals or materials found in just one industrial barrel, or one forklift battery can trigger Tier II reporting requirements? It is critical that you inventory all your chemicals and materials to ensure you are in compliance with this critical regulation.
ECT’s Compliance & Sustainability team provides full-service Tier II Reporting and related compliance activities, supporting more than 300 reporting programs each year. There is still time to comply – contact Eric Schwiderson to get started before the March 1 deadline!
