EPA’s Electronic Reporting Process: An Overview of ERT, CEDRI and WebFIRE



EPA’s Electronic Reporting Process: An Overview of ERT, CEDRI and WebFIRE
Wednesday, February 10, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

This webinar will provide background information and a walk-through of the ERT, CEDRI, and WebFIRE systems, beginning with an overview of the electronic reporting process. EPA regulations codified in 40 CFR Part 60, 62, and 63 require affected sources to electronically submit performance test reports, notification reports, and periodic reports to EPA. Find out the latest on EPA’s reporting tools that industry users should be aware of, including:

  • Electronic Reporting Tool (ERT) – Creates performance test/performance evaluation reports using the latest version of the ERT v6.0
  • Compliance and Emissions Data Reporting Interface (CEDRI) – Newly modernized system where affected sources can electronically submit performance test reports, notification reports, and periodic reports to EPA based on EPA regulations
  • WebFIRE – EPA’s online emissions factor repository, retrieval, and development tool. Reports submitted in CEDRI are available for access after a 30- or 60-day processing period.
