Tier 2

Annual Tier II Reporting

Step 1 - Reports must be electronic

Tier II Report must be submitted in electronic format (.t2s), we do not accept .zip files, .pdf files, or paper copies of the Tier II Form.

Step 2 - Elctronic submissions

Facilities must submit their Tier II Report by creating an electronic submission using the EPA program Tier 2 Submit. Download the software from the link provided below. Enter your facility inventory in the database or import your facility inventory from last year. “Create Submission”, and save it for your records.

Use only current Tier 2 Submit Software http://www2.epa.gov/epcra-tier-i-and-tier-ii-reporting/tier2-submit-software

Single Point Submission

New Mexico through the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) has instituted a single-point submission process for Tier II reporting. Facility owners/operators are required to submit their Tier II report(s) to the New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Facilities are not required to provide the same report to the local emergency planning committee (LEPC) or the local fire department unless those agencies maintain local reporting requirements.
EPCRA Section 302 Emergency Preparedness refers to Hazmat Facilities that store Extremely Hazardous Substances (EHS). Search the provided documents by chemical name or CAS number to find out if you possess such chemicals.
Step 3 - copy of submission

Copy your submission to a CD  or USB drive and send it to DHSEM or send the .t2s  as an email attachment to henry.jolly@state.nm.us. Your submission must be in .t2s format.

NOTE: Do not send a .zip file, I will only except the .t2s file generated by the TierIISubmit program.

We do not require E-Plan submissions. The Department will not give credits for E-Plan submission or payment. After, we receive your submission, the administrator will validate your data, and if needed will contact you to revise your submission if it doesn’t meet our requirements or the intent of Tier II Reporting.

Step 4 - Payment Information

Facilities must provide a payment with the submittal determined by the following table. The payment must be in the form of check or money order. No credit card payments are acceptable. The State of New Mexico does not send invoices. You need to calculate your fee and make the payment on time before March 1, 2020. Fines may apply ($5,000) if you do not provide timely payment. If you need to check the amount of your fee, please call the Hazmat Coordinator. Overpayments will not be returned or refunded.

A facility’s Tier II Report submittal will be deemed complete when the State receives both the electronic submittal and the appropriate payment.

FEE SCHEDULE PER FACILITY (MAXIMUM PAYMENT OF $250)

  • 1st three chemicals per facility=$25.00
  • 4 through 6 chemicals per facility= $50.00
  • 7 through 9 chemicals per facility= $75.00
  • 10 through 12 chemicals per facility= $100.00

Calculation Instructions: If you have more than one facility in New Mexico, calculate the fees due for each facility and add those to find the total payment due with your Tier II submittal. If the total amount exceeds $250, then your payment will be exactly $250. Do not overpay! The Department will not issue a refund of your overpayment.

Make checks payable to: NM Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Cover letter for payment in MS Word format (optional). The cover letter is mandatory. If we cannot match your check to the Facility Name on the Tier II Report, your payment will not be processed and your submittal will be considered late.

Government agencies (local, tribal, state, and federal) are exempt from fees. Contractors who file Tier II Report on behalf of governmental entity site are also exempt.
