RQ’s generally refer to RELEASES
It partly depends on who’s asking for the report

Do "Reportable Quantities," RQ's, refer to storage or release?
In other words the RQ for chloroform is listed as 10 pounds and the RQ for silver nitrate as one pound. Is there any requirement that storage of this amount of these chemicals in Texas be reported, and if so, to whom? I can understand reporting release of these chemicals in the stated amounts, but reporting mere storage would require a lot of paperwork.
