The Emergency Response Notification System (ERNS) provides a mechanism for documenting and verifying release notification information as initially reported to the National Response Center (NRC), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and, to a limited extent, to the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) for response decisions. The initial notification data may be followed up by various Federal, State and local response authorities, as appropriate. ERNS contains data that can be used to analyze release notifications and spills, support emergency planning efforts, and assist decision makers in developing spill prevention programs. The fact sheet provides summary information on notifications of releases of hazardous substances regulated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended.
