Q9. How can I import an EPAís Tier2 zip file into E-Planís Online Tier II Reporting System?

EPAís Tier2 Submit software allows you to export a submission entered through the software into a ďzipĒ file containing up to nine .mer files and one SitePlansTemp folder.

SitePlansTemp (folder)
Tier2SitePlanLink.mer
Tier2ChemicalsInventorty.mer
Tier2ChemInvLocations.mer
Tier2ChemInvMixtures.mer
Tier2Contacts.mer
Tier2ContactsLink.mer
Tier2Facilities.mer
Tier2FacilityIDs.mer
Tier2Phone.mer

There are two ways to create the zip or t2s file from the EPAís Tier2 Submit.
  1. The easiest way to create a zip or t2s file from the EPAís Tier2 Submit is to use the Export feature under the File menu.
  2. The second way is to find the location where the EPAís Tier2 Submit Software is installed on your computer and zip the files in the Export Files folder of the software.
Once the Tier2 zip or t2s file is created, it can be imported into the E-Planís Online Tier II Reporting System. The functionality to perform this operation is present under the E-Plan Online Filing Submission Management screen upon logging into the E-Planís Online Tier II Reporting System.
  • Log into the E-Planís Online Tier II Reporting System at https://tier2.erplan.net using your Access ID and password.
  • On the E-Plan Online Filing Submission Management page, click on Import 'zip/t2s' of the IMPORT TIER2 section.
  • The Import Tier2 or CAMEO Data Files page will appear. Click on Choose File and select the appropriate zip or t2s file on your computer that you want to upload.
  • Click on the Upload button to load the selected zip or t2s file. The Importing Uploaded File screen will appear. Please wait while the uploaded file is processed. This process may take several minutes depending on the size of the uploaded file.
  • Once the process is completed, the Import is complete message will appear. You can verify the result and then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Continue to save.

Note: The Tier2 or CAMEO data files will be imported as they are into the E-Planís Online Tier II Reporting System. For example, if the Tier2 or CAMEO data files are for year 2011, they will be imported as year 2011 submission. You will have to convert the facility data from year 2011 to the filing year using the Copy Data from Previous Year function on the Submission page.
