SARA Title III was enacted by U.S. Congress in 1986 in response to an incident in India in which 2500 people were killed by a chemical release. The purpose behind SARA Title III/EPCRA has been to create a cooperative relationship among government, business, and the public involving all of them in the effort to prevent, to plan, to prepare for, and to manage chemical emergencies.
This law sets requirements for facilities that manufactured, processed, or stored certain hazardous or toxic chemicals, of certain threshold level, on-site to report annually to the state and local governments and to report any accidental releases on a timely basis. The information submitted by facilities provided the basis for community right-to-know and local emergency planning and preparedness.
Asmark will prepare the Tier II Report and produce copies for distribution to the SERC, LEPC, Fire Department, facility file and also a copy to be kept off-site unless the SERC requires electronic filing. For states requiring electronic filing, Asmark assists clients by creating a master copy of the Tier II Report with the products to be reported along with the technical data, enabling the efficient entry and certification of the final data into the SERC website by facility personnel.
Asmark’s simple online process allows you to easily identify what products meet the reportable quantities amount by listing them by listing them by product name as well as active ingredient. After submitting the information, Asmark handles all of the reporting and filing.
