EPA Previews New Electronic Submission Tools

By: Michael K. Reer

On April 5, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency previewed new electronic reporting tools at a meeting of the Environmental Council of the States. The electronic reporting tools are intended to streamline certain reports required by EPA, including hazardous waste reporting and air emissions reporting. New electronic tools for hazardous waste reporting will allow permittees to use electronic manifest systems, replacing the carbon-paper manifest systems currently in use. New electronic tools for air emissions data will allow operators to issue a combined submission for the separate reports currently required by EPA’s Toxic Release Inventory, Greenhouse Gas Reporting system, Compliance and Emissions Data Reporting Interface, and the National Emissions Inventory. Allowing operators to combine these separate reports into a single electronic submission may noticeably decrease reporting costs and time commitments.
