Calculate Report

Calculate Report

The system performs a series of calculations to determine which materials are reportable based on the EPCRA 311/312 guidelines for Tier II Reporting.

  1. The system perform the following calculations (which have been simplified for the purpose of this document):
    1. Convert all material inventory quantities into Pounds (Lbs).
    2. Bulk Material Calculation: Find the maximum quantity, of each Material in any period, for the reporting year. If this value is greater than or equal to 10,000 Lbs, then the Material is reportable.
    3. Bulk Chemical (CAS) Calculation (optional): Find the maximum quantity of each Chemical aggregated across all Materials at a facility, in any period, for the reporting year. If this value is greater than or equal to 10,000 Lbs, then each Material the reportable Chemical is found in will be reportable.
      NOTE: By default, Bulk Material Calculation is used in most applications. However, customers can opt to also use Bulk CAS Calculations if they wish to do so. The calculation methods used can be changed in Organization Settings.
    4. Find EHS reportables
      1. Max Material Qty (Lbs) *Concentration % of EHS Chemical = EHS Chemical Qty (Lbs).
      2. If the aggregated EHS Chemical Qty is greater than or equal to 500 Lbs (or the TPQ, whichever is lower), then the material is reportable and the EHS Chemical is listed on the report under the Material.

NOTE: If there is a large amount of data to Calculate reportables for, you can log off and come back to the Reporting Effort at a later time. A Notification will be delivered to the Notification Center when the Calculations have been completed. Depending on user settings, the notifications can be forwarded to an email address configured in User Management.
