Definition of senior management official

If a covered facility has a manager who is the originator of the data in the Form R report, would he/she sign the form or would it be the facility manager to whom this manager reports?

Senior management official means "an official with management responsibility for the person or persons completing the report, or the manager of environmental programs for the facility or establishments, or for the corporation owning or operating the facility or establishments responsible for certifying similar reports under other environmental regulatory requirements" (40 CFR Section 372.3). Your facility must make the determination regarding who meets this definition. Additional guidance on certifying the Form R can be found in the Revised 1998 EPCRA Section 313 Questions and Answers Document and the TRI GuideME Web site.
