why ecmps
Why ECMPS?
  • Replaces multiple tools available to check data (ETS-FTP, ETS Mainframe, MDC Hourly, MDC-QR, MDC-FTP)
  • Replaces multiple tools needed to submit data (ETS-FTP, MDC-FTP)
  • Eliminates multiple sets of feedback (Instant feedback, Quarterly Review, BAF and OOC, Flow-to-load, ad-hoc reports)
vision for ecmps
Vision for ECMPS
  • Create a single tool for ALL users
  • Ability for industry users to run all checks on desktop prior to submission
  • Identify and correct errors before submission
  • Provide one set of feedback
  • Seamless version updates of tool
vision for ecmps cont d
Vision for ECMPS (cont’d)
  • Maintain select data outside of the quarterly report process
  • Direct access to EPA data through data transfers
  • Move away from flat files and mainframe
  • Save time and money
projected time line
Projected Time Line
  • Develop applications in 2004 through 2005
  • Test the process and system in 2006
    • CAMD testers
    • Industry Beta testers
    • States and Regions
  • System to be deployed in First Quarter 2007
status of ecmps
Status of ECMPS
  • Developed vision for project
  • Proving the vision
  • Defining the submission processes
  • Defining data checks
  • Identifying areas of communication and tracking
rethinking the current process
Rethinking the Current Process
  • New and innovative approach to complying with CAMD programs
  • Changes to the reporting requirements in 40 CFR part 75
  • Changes to the Electronic Data Reporting (EDR) format and instructions
  • Allows gradual transition to a more flexible format for submissions
proposed changes to 40 cfr part 75
Proposed Changes to40 CFR part 75
  • Initial Monitoring plan to be submitted with certification test notice (21 days prior to testing instead of 45 days)
  • Monitoring plan no longer part of the quarterly emissions data file
  • Facility information no longer part of the quarterly emissions data file
proposed changes to reporting
Proposed Changes to Reporting
  • Maintain data outside of the quarterly report process
    • Facility information
    • Unit characteristic information
    • Monitoring plan
    • Contact information
  • Some monitoring plan data removed or reported as other records
  • Other records moved into monitoring plan
recap of ecmps
Recap of ECMPS
  • Create an improved process to maintain, check and submit monitoring and emissions related information
  • Develop a single tool to check and submit data
  • Change the regulation and reporting instructions to accommodate new process
  • Receive input from stakeholders throughout the process
