Storage requirements are under SARA 311 and 312. There is typically a March 1 inventory update to the local emergency planning committee, the state emergency planning committee and the house local fire department. Want people tend to forget is that there is also a reporting requirement when you exceed a threshold quantity of a chemical not on you inventory.

Good Afternoon,
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.
Thank you.
