Parent Previous Next

You can add a new chemical to your submission by clicking on the appropriate Add New Chemical link shown on the Online Filing Home page.  After entering the required information, press the appropriate Save and Continue button to save the information.





Chemical Information page

In the Chemical Information page, you must enter/select/check all of the applicable information including the chemical details, physical state, hazards, health effects, and quantity.



*** Important notes:



By checking the 'Below Reporting Thresholds' box, you are certifying that this chemical is not of a reportable quantity under Section 312 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act of 1986.




Chemical Storage Locations page

In the Chemical Storage Locations page, you must enter/select/check all of the applicable information including the storage type, pressure type, temperature type, location, and maximum amount at location.


There is no limit on the number of chemical storage locations that you can add.


*** Important note:  Unless Confidential is checked, each chemical must have at least one location record, and each such record must specify:


(If "Confidential is checked or Location at Facility contains “Confidential”, you are supposed to provide a Tier II Confidential Location Information Sheet.  For Texas facilities, though, complete storage location information must be entered into Tier2Submit even if "Confidential" is checked.)



Confidential Chemical Location:

Checking the “Confidential” check box means that no locations are required for that chemical.  However, in order to fulfill the proper reporting under EPCRA, you must submit a Confidential Location Information Sheet to the SERC, LEPC, and fire department.  This form is used by the authorities to verify actual locations for audits and emergencies and not by public citizens.  




Chemical Components page

In the Chemical Components page, you must enter/select/check all of the applicable mixture components information including the CAS number, component name, EHS, maximum amount code, and percentage.


There is no limit on the number of chemical mixture components that you can add.  For more detailed information, visit the EPA's EPCRA Frequent Questions - Sections 311 & 312 web site at https://emergencymanagement.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/201455628.
