Tier2 Reporting & Community Right to Know

Any businesses that have on hand hazardous materials above certain quantities during any portion of the previous year are required to report so by March 1st. The reports are especially important to your local firefighters and emergency planners so they can know what to expect when responding to emergencies at your business. More info on the Emergency Planning and Public Right to Know Act and VT requirements can be found here: https://vem.vermont.gov/programs/epcra

Some of the more common materials required for reporting and the amounts that trigger reporting are: Gasoline (>1,600 Gallons), Fuel Oil (>1,600 Gallons), Propane (>2,300 Gallons), Road Salt (>10,000 lbs), Lead/Acid Batteries (with > 500 lbs of sulfuric acid in them) and other, more toxic substances may have much smaller reporting requirements. (For other reporting amounts, see https://vem.vermont.gov/sites/demhs/files/pdfs/programs/epcra/3-Typical-Chemicals-to-be-Reported.pdf)

The Vermont State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) requests that facilities submit Tier II reports using the EPA Tier2Submit software program which is available at: www.epa.gov/emergencies/content/epcra/tier2.htm . Due to COVID-19, the state will not be able to offer an in-person training on using the software this year, but there are two upcoming virtual trainings that will cover the same material:
