Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act

Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA Title III) is the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA).

SARA Title III has requirements related to the hazardous chemical storage, toxic and chemical release reporting, emergency planning and public right to know about chemicals and chemical releases within their community. EHS maintains an inventory of chemicals stored on campus (excluding chemicals used in research and teaching labs). An annual notification (as required under the rules) is submitted to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality that manages the State program.

EHS must be informed and approve any new chemical storage on campus. For more information on SARA Title III and its requirements contact EHS.
