UPDATE: The new version of the Delaware TIER II MANAGERTM online reporting system is open for reporting (effective January 27, 2014). For instructions and access to the system, please visit our TIER II MANAGERTM reporting page.
NOTICE OF SIGNIFICANT CHANGES beginning in 2014
New Version of TIER II MANAGERTM
We are implementing a new version of our online reporting system, TIER II MANAGERTM. The new version has been developed using a new platform, to keep pace with changes in technology. While the system screens will have a new look and feel, the overall reporting process using the system will be similar to previous years.
U.S. EPA Changes to Tier II Data Elements
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made changes to the Tier II reporting requirements by adding several data elements and modifying several existing items. EPA has developed a fact sheet providing an overview of the changes . These changes are effective January 1, 2014, which will include the 2013 calendar year reports. The new version of Delaware’s online TIER II MANAGER TM system mentioned above will incorporate the EPA modifications, and reports submitted on- line using the new system will comply with the EPA changes.
Unlike previous years, Tier II Manager electronic certification Is now considered sufficient without a hardcopy signature. Facilities are no longer required to print the Fee Summary/Certification Letter, sign in ink, and mail it to DNREC for each online submission. If a facility: (1) uploads a Site Plot Plan into Tier II manager or has an accurate one already electronically on file in Tier II Manager, (2) pays all applicable fees online, and (3) submits their report online, then nothing will need to be mailed.
However, if a facility is mailing a check or submitting a hardcopy Site Plot Plan, then they must attach a hardcopy of the email notification they received from the system once the online submission is complete. This will ensure the mailed items are matched with the appropriate facility and online report submission.
