Tier Two reporting
Changes to 2020 Reporting
We made some improvements to Tier Two Online to help us better align with federal reporting and to improve the overall reporting experience:
Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), any facility in Washington that stores certain amounts of hazardous substances must submit a Tier Two report by March 1 each year.
Facilities can submit their reports through Tier Two Online. Using our system allows facilities to automatically submit their reports to one of the required agencies, State Emergency Response Commission (SERC).
Do I need to submit a Tier Two report?
If your facility stores any of the following on site at any time, you must submit a Tier Two report:
- 10,000 pounds of hazardous substances.
- Equal to or more than the threshold planning quantity of an Extremely Hazardous Substance (EHS).
Prepare for changes to the 2020 report
Please allow extra time to complete your 2020 report. The expanded hazard categories will require additional data entry. Here is what to expect as you fill out your report, and ways you can prepare for these changes.
