    Navigating EPA Tier II Reporting

    For EHS professionals, March 1st is a universally known day. It’s the day that annual Tier II reports are due to the state, local planning commission, and fire department.

    Regardless of what state you’re in, Tier II hasn’t really changed much over the years. The reporting process and report format may differ slightly from state to state but in general, the questions you’re ultimately going to be answering remain largely unchanged from year to year: Do you have hazardous chemicals? If so, what are they and how much do you have? Where are they stored? Are any considered Extremely Hazardous Substances? How do you report mixtures? What about retail fuel service stations?

    In theory, these questions should be easy to answer but no matter how many times you’ve completed a Tier II report, there are always points of confusion along the way that make this seemingly simple task a bit of a headache.

    Tier II is one of those annual requirements that touches a large number of companies in the U.S. Even if you don’t have chemicals meeting the threshold reporting amounts, you still have to go through the process of figuring that out. You still have to do the math!

    If you find yourself looking at the calendar every February and groaning because you know you’re going to have to try and remember what you did last year and how you did it or because you’re never really 100% sure that what you’ve calculated is accurate, or maybe you’re groaning because your processes don’t include tracking daily chemical amount and collecting this information is a nightmare, there is a solution that can reduce the burden.

    To help make this process easier we’ve put together this white paper to provide a little guidance and a few tools to help you complete your Tier II report without having to reach for the Advil bottle.
