Lesson 5: Requirements for Authorized Program e-Reporting
§ 3.2000(a) states that authorized programs must use an acceptable electronic document receiving system, as specified by the criteria set forth in § 3.2000(b) and (c), which are described later in this lesson.
§ 3.2000(a) also requires that for any paper document that requires a signature, the corresponding e-document must bear a valid electronic signature. And it also outlines the conditions under which EPA will accept a paper follow on signature or certification as an alternative.
The next portion of this lesson will explain concepts while the remainder of the lesson will address CROMERR requirements for authorized program electronic reporting approaches.
