Fuels Registration, Reporting, and Compliance Help

Has EPA developed a program that allows EPA to check balances between parties on hand-offs? If so, could you provide the same tool to industry to enable companies to run the tool to reduce errors before submission?

No, EPA is not developing software to check hand-off balances. We will rely on database reports to identify potential hand-off reporting problems. Specifically, we will be looking at summaries of transactions, for a given quarter, between individual hand-off partners (shipper and receiver) to verify that the product volume shipped equals the product volume received, with zero tolerance.
