Tier II reports are due March 1 for the previous calendar year. Failure to comply with these rules allows the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assess civil and administrative penalties that can now equal $53,907 per day per violation. Fines add up quickly since each day a violation continues constitutes a separate violation. This webinar explains the reporting program and provides a 'how-to' on completing and submitting Tier II forms.
