"Electronic Reporting, Electronic Records"

September 19 , 2001
Submitted by: Garry Kuberski, FDEP

A report from the Environmental Council of the States contained the following:

EPA Proposes Electronic Reporting Rule

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published its proposed rule -Establishment of Electronic Reporting: Electronic Records - in the August 31, 2001 Federal Register (Page 46162). The proposed rule (a.k.a. CROMERRR) will remove existing regulatory obstacles to electronic reporting and record keeping across a broad spectrum of EPA programs, and establish requirements to assure that electronic documents and electronic records are - for all purposes - as valid and authentic as their paper counterparts. These proposed requirements will apply to regulated entities that choose to submit electronic documents and/or keep electronic records.

The proposal also defines how States and tribes will be able to seek EPA
approval to accept electronic documents or allow the maintenance of
electronic records to satisfy reporting and record keeping requirements under
authorized or delegated environmental programs they administer. The proposal includes criteria against which a State or tribe's electronic document receiving system will be evaluated before EPA can approve changes to the authorized program to allow electronic reporting. Similarly, the proposal includes criteria against which EPA will evaluate a State or tribe's provisions for electronic record keeping. Under this proposal, electronic document submission or electronic record keeping for regulated entities and States will be totally voluntary. You can find a copy of the proposed rule (in pdf format) at - click on "State-EPA Partnership."

Comments on the proposed rule are due to EPA on or before November 29, 2001. Comments provided electronically will be considered timely if they are
submitted by 11:59 p.m. (Eastern time) November 29, 2001.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be addressed to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Enforcement and Compliance Docket and Information Center, (Mail Code 2201A), Attn: Docket Number EC-2000-007, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC, 20460. (37-5)(Blakeslee)

The proposed rule contains websites as follows:
