Pursuant to 40 CFR 370.44, the owner or operator of a facility must submit the required Tier II inventory information to their State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), and fire department with jurisdiction over their facility. If a state has implemented a single point of submission process for Tier II reports, is a facility still required to submit the reports directly to the LEPC and fire department?
States implementing a single point of submission process may distribute reports to the appropriate LEPC and fire department on behalf of each facility. However, LEPCs and fire departments may have their own local reporting requirements for direct submission to those agencies. Please check with the SERC, LEPC, and fire department to ensure that use of a single point of submission process will meet all reporting obligations.
