Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule

Lesson 1: What Are the Compliance Dates for States, Tribes, and Local Governments' Authorized Programs?

Authorized programs must meet CROMERR's compliance dates:

  • New E-Reporting Systems
    Programs with a new e-reporting system, as defined in CROMERR, must seek EPA approval before using that system to receive e-reports in lieu of paper.
  • Existing E-Reporting Systems
    Programs with an existing e-reporting system were required to submit an application for EPA approval no later than January 13, 2010.
    Note: The requirement was for programs to submit the application by this deadline; the program need not receive EPA approval by that deadline. The program may continue to operate the existing e-reporting system while the application is under review.
