Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Workshops in New England

EPA's Region 1 office periodically conducts compliance assistance workshops on Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) requirements in New England throughout the year. These free workshops are opportunities to learn about your facility's planning and reporting obligations under EPCRA. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to understand your EPCRA reporting obligations. Complying with EPCRA requirements helps ensure that local community residents and first responders are protected from exposure to hazardous materials.

Due to the recent government shutdown, all EPA Region 1 EPCRA workshops that were scheduled did not take place. Unfortunately, EPA will not be able to reschedule these workshops before the March 1st reporting deadline. EPA apologizes for any confusion or inconvenience you may have encountered.

Instead, EPA has scheduled two identical EPCRA webinars entitled Refresher on Tier 2 Reporting under Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). In these webinars, Len Wallace will cover the basics of EPCRA Tier 2 reporting for staff who are new to EPCRA Tier 2 reporting or want a refresher on the process in anticipation of the March 1st deadline. Len will also answer questions at the end of each webinar. The same webinar will be offered on two dates, feel free to sign up for the one that works best for your schedule.
