EPCRA Sections 311-312, requires local industry representatives to report hazardous chemicals used, transporting, or stored in their workplace or facilities, and maintain an MSDS. Inventory reports of these chemicals must be submitted to their State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and local fire department, by March 1st of every year. This information will be made available to the public.
