Q1. How is E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System different from EPA’s Tier2 Submit Software?

The E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System is fully compatible with the Tier2 Submit Software developed by EPA. However, the advantage of E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System is that you do not have to install any software on your machine to submit your data. With no software, there are no facility based software updates required every year. Also, E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System allows you to retrieve your submission from any computer with the security of an Access ID and password that is known only to you.

 

Q2. Do I need to pay anything to use the E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System?

No, you do not have to pay any fees to use the E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System.

 

Q3. When is the Tier II reporting year? Why does E-Plan display UTC time?

The Tier II reporting year is always one year before the current year (e.g. filing deadline March 1, 2011 for January 1 through December 31, 2010). Tier II reports may be submitted any time between January 1 and March 1; avoid the rush and file early.

*** Important note: E-Plan displays the facility's First Submit Date and Last Modified Date based on Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which is the time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. Computer servers, online services, and other entities that rely on having a universally accepted time use UTC for that purpose.

UTC does not change with a change of seasons, but local time changes if a time zone jurisdiction observes daylight saving time. For example, UTC is 5 hours ahead of local time on the east coast of the United States during winter (EST - Eatern Standard Time), but 4 hours ahead during summer (EDT - Eastern Daylight Time).

March 2, 2011 4:59 AM UTC is March 1, 2011 11:59 PM EST

 

Q4. How do I start using E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System?

Q9. How can I import an EPA’s Tier2 zip file into E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System?

EPA’s Tier2 Submit software allows you to export a submission entered through the software into a “zip” 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 EPA’s Tier2 Submit.

  1. The easiest way to create a zip or t2s file from the EPA’s Tier2 Submit is to use the Export feature under the File menu.
  2. The second way is to find the location where the EPA’s Tier2 Submit Software is installed on your computer and zip the files in the Export Files folder of the software.

Once the Tier2 Submit zip or t2s file is created, it can be imported into the E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System by uploading the file through the web interface. The functionality to perform this operation (i.e. Upload Tier2 ‘.zip’, Tier2 ‘.t2s’, or CAMEO '.zip' file) is present under the Submission Home screen upon logging into the E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System.

  • Log into the E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System at http://tier2.erplan.net using your Access ID and password.
  • On the Submission Home page, go to the ‘Upload Tier2 '.zip', Tier2 '.t2s', or CAMEO '.zip' file’ box and click on Continue.
  • The Import Tier2 or CAMEO Data Files page will appear. Click on Browse and choose 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-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System. For example, if the Tier2 or CAMEO data files are for year 2009, they will be imported as year 2009 submission. You will have to convert the facility data from year 2009 to the filing year 2010 using the Copy Data from Previous Year function on the Submission page.

 

Q10. Can a zip file made from CAMEO be loaded into E-Plan?

Yes, you can import a zip file made from CAMEO into E-Plan as follows:

  • Log into the E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System at http://tier2.erplan.net using your Access ID and password.
  • On the Submission Home page, go to the ‘Upload Tier2 '.zip', Tier2 '.t2s', or CAMEO '.zip' file’ box and click on Continue.
  • The Import Tier2 or CAMEO Data Files page will appear. Click on Browse and choose the appropriate zip file on your computer that you want to upload.
  • Click on the Upload button to load the selected zip 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.

 

Q11. How do I upload documents (for example: site plans, contingency plans, maps, floor plans, or MSDS)?

There is no difference between uploading a document under a Facility, a Chemical, or a Contact, at least from a first responder's perspective. When a first responder looks at facility information on E-Plan, all the documents under Facility, Chemical, and Contact appear as a single menu.

  1. If you want to upload a document under a particular facility, use the Edit link and the Documents tab.
  2. If you want to upload a document under a particular contact, use the Edit link and the Documents tab.
  3. If you want to upload a document under a particular chemical, use the Edit link and the Additional Documents tab.

This procedure is for uploading documents for a "facility" in general:

  • Log into the E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System at http://tier2.erplan.net using your Access ID and password.
  • On the Submission Home page, go to the ‘Enter new Data/ Retrieve old Data’ box and select the ‘Select a year to file/retrieve Tier II data’. Click on Continue.
  • The Filing Management page will appear. Click on the Edit button beside the facility. The selected Facility Information page will appear.
  • Select the Documents link on the menu bar.
  • Select the File Type and then File Category (Note: If entering a link, choose File type as Link and put the link as http://somewebsite in the description field.)
  • Click on Browse and choose the file on your computer that you want to upload.
  • Fill in a Description for the file (such as Contingency Plan).

Clicking on the Edit link will display the entered details pre-populated. After making required changes, press the appropriate Save and Continue button to submit the changes.

 

Q14. How do I enter a CAS number for chemicals that do not have an associated CAS (Proprietary mixture, for example)?

You must enter the value 0000 in the CAS number field for any chemicals that do not have a CAS number.

 

Q15. What type of values can I enter in the information fields for facility, contact, and chemical information?

For most fields, any string made up of alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9, special characters such as / and %) is an acceptable value. For example, facility name can be made up of alphanumeric characters and special characters. However, in fields such as quantities, only numeric characters are acceptable. Do not use commas or the percentage sign.

 

Q16. What about the state’s specific fields?

Clicking on the State Fields link when editing the Facility Information or Chemical Information, the State Applicable Fields page will appear.

Q21. If I submit data on E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System, are the details of the submission reported directly to state?

For the 2010 reporting year, the following States accepted E-Plan submittals:

When you submit data on E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System, it does not automatically send your submission to the state, but it can satisfy your State’s Tier II reporting requirements, see below.

  1. Contact your State official to see if they accept E-Plan as a form of electronic filing.
    1. If your State does accept E-Plan submittals, clicking the “Upload Data to E-Plan”, selecting the facility, and then pressing the “Update” button to submit (file) your data to E-Plan. All facilities that show the status as “Filed” are available to State agencies and local governments.

  2. Some counties within a state have a tie up with E-Plan so you do not have to submit data to the county reporting agency. Contact your County officials to see if they accept E-Plan as a form of electronic filing. Again this process is only for the county; you may still need to submit your data to your state if it does not accept E-Plan submittals.

 

Q22. Is there any way to view data in .t2s or .zip file created by E-Plan?

  • The .t2s or the .zip file created by E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System can only be viewed by the Tier2 Submit software developed by the EPA.
  • Open Tier2 Submit software. From the File menu click on Import / Export, then choose Import Files and select the .t2s or the .zip file stored on your computer.
  • The software displays messages indicating whether everything was imported properly.
  • Click on the Close button and verify that all the facility information you entered on E-Plan is visible. Pay particular attention to whether the properties of chemicals and their locations have been imported properly.
  • If everything looks okay, you can use the .t2s file stored on your computer to make an electronic submission to your state or local reporting agencies.

 

Q23. How do I delete an unused facility or remove last year's record?

Warning: E-Plan’s Online Tier II Reporting System is designed to allow you to modify/update your submitted facility data at any time after you uploaded it to E-Plan; however, you should not select the "Delete Facility" link and delete the submitted facility data from the system.

Q26. What are the Facility Identification numbers such as Dun and Bradstreet, SIC and NAICS?

Dun and Bradstreet (D & B) - The D&B DUNS Number (website: http://www.dnb.com/us/) is an unique nine-digit identification sequence, which provides a unique identifier of single business entities, while linking corporate family structures together.

Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) - The Standard Industrial Classification has been replaced by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).

North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) - On January 1, 2003 OSHA began using the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) for industry identification in its various data sets. NAICS uses a six digit hierarchical coding system to classify all economic activity into twenty industry sectors. Five sectors are mainly goods-producing sectors and fifteen are entirely services-producing sectors. This six digit hierarchical structure allows greater coding flexibility than the four digit structure of the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system. NAICS allows for the identification of 1,170 industries compared to the 1,004 found in the SIC. For detailed information on the NAICS coding structure, please visit the U.S. Census Bureau at http://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/ or search the NAICS by keyword at http://www.census.gov/epcd/naics02/.

Here are examples of Facility’s ID Types, ID Values and Descriptions.

ID Type

ID Value

Description

Dun and Bradstreet

800188161

Q27. How do I add a NAICS code?

  • On the Filing Management page, click on 'Edit' link beside the facility information.
  • Select the Facility Identification link.
  • Select the ID Type as NAICS.
  • Enter the NAICS number.
  • Enter its description (e.g., industry name associated with the reported NAICS code).
  • Click on the 'Add' button to save.

To view a complete list of 2007 NAICS Sector codes and titles, visit the "Downloads/Reference Files/Tools" section of this website at http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/sssd/naics/naicsrch?chart=2007. Under "2007 NAICS," you can view download an Excel file either the complete NAICS code hierarchy, ranging from broad 2-digit Sector codes to specific 6-digit U.S. industry codes, or a list of just the 6-digit U.S. Industry codes.

 

Q28. Does the system generate the latitude and longitude coordinates?

Yes, the system will convert a valid physical address to latitude and longitude coordinates via geocoding when you select the "Lookup Lat/Long" function. Furthermore, the system will check on every coordinate that is manually entered by you.
  a) Check if a coordinate is in decimal degrees
  b) Check if a latitude coordinate is within the range of 0 to 80
  c) Check if a longitude coordinate is within the range of -180 to -50

Note: If you upload your Tier II report via a Tier2 or CAMEO zip file, you must verify that the facility's physical address is correct (e.g., street address, city, county, state and country names). Moreover, you must report the facility's latitude and longitude data or use the "Lookup Lat/Long" function to generate it.

Q29. What are the most common errors while creating Tier II report using E-Plan?

There are seven most common errors that facilities fail to report while creating their Tier II report using E-Plan's Online Tier II Reporting System. If there are any errors found on the Tier II report, they will be indicated on the submission validation report. Moreover, the system will not display the "Upload Data to E-Plan" option that allow you to submit your Tier II data until the “Submission Validation Report” indicates all required fields are correct.

 

1) Incorrect or missing County name

Many facilities fail to provide the correct County name because EPA's Tier2 Submit software does not validate County name. However, E-Plan requires a valid County name reported for each facility.

Street or Physical Address Description

Street

Full street address or state road of the facility

City

City or territory where facility is located

County

County, parish, island or district where facility is located

Fire District

Local fire department district where facility is located

State

State or territory where facility is located

Zip

5 digit zip code where the facility is located

 

2) Not reporting NAICS code

EPA’s Tier2 Submit 2008 changed the validation to require NAICS instead of SIC code, as required by the new EPCRA rule. 

To view a complete list of 2007 NAICS Sector codes and titles, visit the "Downloads/Reference Files/Tools" section of this website at http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/sssd/naics/naicsrch?chart=2007. Under "2007 NAICS," you can view download an Excel file either the complete NAICS code hierarchy, ranging from broad 2-digit Sector codes to specific 6-digit U.S. industry codes, or a list of just the 6-digit U.S. Industry codes.

You can add a NAICS code to your Tier II report per these instructions.

  • On the Filing Management page, click on 'Edit' link beside the facility information.
  • Select the Facility Identification link.
  • Select the ID Type as NAICS
  • For ID Value, enter the NAICS number
  • Enter its description (e.g., Industry name associated with the reported NAICS code)
  • Click on the 'Add' button to save.

 

3) Incorrect or not reporting latitude and longitude coordinates

Many facilities fail to provide valid latitude and longitude coordinates because EPA's Tier2 Submit software does not validate the reported latitude and longitude data. E-Plan requires that you must report the facility's latitude and longitude coordinates in decimal degrees or select the "Lookup Lat/Long" and the system will convert the facility's physical address to latitude and longitude coordinates via geocoding. Furthermore, E-Plan checks on every coordinate that is manually entered into the E-Plan's Online Tier II Reporting System.

a) Check if a coordinate is in decimal degrees.
b) Check if a latitude coordinate is within the range of 0 to 80.
c) Check if a longitude coordinate is within the range of -180 to -50.

 

4) Not reporting Owner/Operator

For each facility submission, EPA requires an Owner/Operator with full name, mail address, and phone.

 

5) Not reporting Emergency Contact or 24-hour phone for Emergency Contact

For each facility submission, EPA requires one Emergency Contact with full name and 24-hour phone.

 

6) Not reporting a CAS number

You must enter 0000 for any chemical that you do not have a CAS number.

 

7) Not reporting State data

Some states request additional information for Tier II Chemical Inventory reports. E-Plan validates both Federal and State requirements. Below is a list of the States that have additional data fields for filing year 2010.

Alaska
Arizona
Colorado
Georgia
Hawaii
Indiana
Iowa
