Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule

Back   Next

The image is a clipboard labeled Checklist

Lesson 5 described how CROMERR presents the system requirements for receiving electronic reports, with a focus on the system- and enforcement-related requirements.

Lesson 6 describes how these same requirements are presented in the Blank System Checklist which was introduced in Lesson 4. You may want to refer to the checklist as you step through this lesson.

See: Blank System Checklist (DOC)(13 pp, 120 K)

  1. Registration
  2. Signature Process
  3. Submission Process
  4. Signature Validation
  5. Copy of Record (COR)

This lesson covers these five processes in detail, and:

  • Shows how the CROMERR requirements and checklist processes are interrelated.
  • Suggests how to use the CROMERR System Checklist Template in conjunction with the CROMERR System Checklist to describe how your system meets the CROMERR system requirements.


  • The CROMERR System Checklist is not a required part of your CROMERR application; instead, it is a tool created to assist you as you work toward meeting the requirements.
  • Processes three and five are involved in electronic submissions, while processes one, two, and four are only involved where the submissions include an electronic signature.
