Where Do I Start?

We often hear this question from new business representatives.  We explain that this regulation applies to chemicals and products on site not generated waste.  An overview of reporting requirements:

  • If there is a reportable quantity of any extremely hazardous substances (EHS) on site or a product that contains an EHS, the business should submit a 302 – EHS Notification form within 60 days of the date it arrived on site. Refer to the Consolidated List of Lists for reporting thresholds.
  • If there are 10,000 pounds or more of a hazardous substance or a reportable quantity of an extremely hazardous substance on site at any one time, the business should submit 311 – MSDS form within 90 days of the date it arrived on site.  This is a one-time submittal, unless there is a change.
  • If there are 10,000 pounds or more of a hazardous substance or a reportable quantity of an extremely hazardous substance on site at any one time, you will need to send in completed Tier Two – Emergency & Hazardous Chemical Inventory report each year.  Information on chemicals stored during the previous calendar year is due March 1st each year.  If you missed a year, you can send reports for previous years.
  • If a business is subject to EPCRA reporting requirements and a chemical is accidentally released, a verbal notification must be made immediately, followed by a written follow up report within thirty days.
