As a result of the 1986 Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) the Massachusetts Statewide Emergency Response Commission (SERC) was established to promote chemical emergency preparedness and prevention through collaboration and planning. EPCRA requires facilities to maintain material safety data sheets (MSDS) for any hazardous chemical used or stored in the workplace. The MSDSs must be submitted to the SERC via the Tier II Reporting System, the facility’s Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and/or Regional Emergency Planning committee (REPC), and to the local fire department. The SERC maintains a list of LEPCs and REPCs pdf format of EPCs in Massachusetts

TIER II Reporting

The Massachusetts SERC requires filers to submit reports via the Tier II Manager System. The SERC will no longer accept reports from the U.S. EPA’s Tier II Submit software.
