Ready, Set, Go: Get Your Quality Assurance (QA) and Emissions Data Ready

The Q1 Reporting Period is underway! Units operating under the Acid Rain Program (ARP), the Cross-State Pollution Rule (CSAPR), the NOx SIP Call (SIPNOX), the Texas SO2 Trading Program (TXSO2), the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), and the Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule have until the end of the day on Friday, April 30th, 2021 to report their Q1 QA and emissions data sets using the Environmental Protection Agency’s ECMPS client tool. 

So Many Files, So Little Time

In total, facilities submit close to 4,000 files each reporting period. We have some simple advice: start early, and follow these five steps:
  1. Review and process your data as early as possible
  2. Generate the files you need to submit
  3. Evaluate the files using ECMPS 
  4. Address and correct critical errors
  5. To the best of your ability, clean up the remaining errors before the deadline hits you
If you run into a problem, contact ECMPS Support as soon as possible. The sooner you talk to them, the better. If you need more help, our Reporting team is standing by to assist you. They help hundreds of customers each quarter and know all the ins and outs of correcting errors.
