2017 Tier 2 Software Released


November 28, 2017


The State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) announces that the 2017 Tier 2 Submit software has now been released by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This software allows facilities with reportable quantities of hazardous materials to document and submit their reports electronically, through e-mail or on a CD, as required by the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA).

This law requires facilities with 10,000 pounds of a hazardous material or 500 pounds or less of an Extremely Hazardous Substance based on the chemicals’ Threshold Planning Quantity. This information is used by local first responders to assist them in identifying where there are chemical risks in their community and LEPC’s in developing regional response plans. To access this free software please go to the following link:


For more information on reporting or assistance in completing your reporting please contact you county EMA office or call the Maine Emergency Management Agency at 1-800-452-8735 or e-mail maine.serc@maine.gov.
