The Community Right-to-Know Program

The Community Right-to-Know Law [Local Law 26 of 1988], requires the City to effectively regulate the storage, use, and handling of hazardous substances. As part of the law, we oversee the use and storage of hazardous substances that pose a threat to public health and environment in New York City through its Right-to-Know (RTK) Program.

The RTK Program manages the reporting and storage of hazardous substances by requiring businesses and facilities to annually file a Tier II report detailing the quantity, location, and chemical nature of every hazardous substance stored within their facilities throughout the five boroughs.

Tier II Online Filing System

The Community Right-to-Know Program uses an online reporting system that allows the facilities to electronically submit their Annual, Revision or Updated Tier II Submissions. Facilities can choose to pay online using an electronic check or credit card.

The filing deadline is March 1 every year.
