Environmental Protection Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) Section 311/312 requires facilities that have a material safety data sheet (MSDS) for any hazardous chemicals stored or used in the work place above certain quantities to submit an emergency and hazardous chemical inventory form (TIER II) to the SERC, LEPC, and local fire department. The TIER II form is due annually on March 1st. Approximately 500,000 products have MSDS forms.
The state utilizes an On-line Tier II reporting tool, On-line TIER II Manager. The On-line Tier II Manager program provides greater flexibility, efficiency, and accuracy and went into use in January of 2008. Through this electronic submission process the DNR will handle submission of data to the LEPC, however facilities are still required to submit to their local fire department.
We encourage facilities to submit their Tier II report form to the IDNR using this online reporting system. Updates may be submitted at any time during the year! We hope you will find the new system efficient and easy to use.
If you have any questions about the on-line reporting process please feel free to contact Elonda Bacon at 515/725-0302 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
