To meet the March 1, 2020, reporting deadline and avoid penalties, facilities that have one or more hazardous chemicals covered under OSHA’s Hazardous Communication Standard must soon submit their Tier II forms to local fire departments, local emergency planning committees, and state emergency response commissions. The Tier II Reporting Service from J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. helps these facilities ensure that their information is submitted accurately and on time.

“Tier II reporting is a challenge for many companies because it requires them to know the reporting chemical threshold quantities based on how hazardous a chemical is,” said Steve Murray, vice president of editorial & consulting services at J.J. Keller. “Then they’re required to fill out all of the reporting elements, including facility information, chemical descriptions and constituents, chemical health hazards, and storage types and locations. But with our Tier II Reporting Service, a J.J. Keller environmental consultant will handle it all on a facility’s behalf to meet the deadline and help avoid penalties.”

Tier II reporting is required under section 312 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) for the purpose of providing state and local officials and the public with information on the hazardous chemicals being stored in their communities.
