Tier II Report Due March 1, 2017: How To File Properly, Stay Compliant And Avoid Penalties
|Date / Time:
Alert: The deadline to file your Tier II report is March 1, 2017 and, if not filed on time, it could subject you to enforcement actions including significant penalties.
Tier II reports, more officially known as Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Forms, are required to be submitted annually to local fire departments, Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) and State Emergency Response Commissions (SERCs) under Section 312 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA).
The purpose of Tier II reports is to provide these agencies with specific information on hazardous chemicals stored at facilities so that they can prepare for and respond to any chemical emergency that may occur.
Join us for an informative presentation and Q&A with attorney Susan Johnson of Butzel Long. She’ll guide you through the Tier II reporting requirements and the necessary steps to file your Tier II report correctly and on time.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
