eDisclosure – Getting Started Checklist
EPA welcomes you to eDisclosure. If you have any questions, please contact eDisclosure support via email at firstname.lastname@example.org; or toll-free at 888-890-1995.
To facilitate your electronic disclosure, please have the following information readily available before you initiate the eDisclosure process.
- Date of discovery of violation. The “21 days to disclose period” begins when the entity discovers that a violation has, or may have, occurred.
- Facility name, address, city, state, zip code. You may use EPA’s FRS Query page to check if your facility is already in our Facility Registry System, or you can use the “Manage Facility” functionality in eDisclosure to check or add a new facility that will be added to EPA databases.
- Environmental law (e.g., the Clean Air Act) and section of violation (i.e., the specific legal provision(s) that may have been violated).
