Please let me know if I can be of any assistance!


20th of each month, monthly eDMR are due!


1/31:  The fourth quarter and semi-annual air permit deviation reports are due.  If you have a PER, check your permit-- you may still have a quarterly, semi-annual or annual report due this month!


2/15:  If you opted for the straight calendar year reporting period, you probably have a PER due.  These reports are automatically created in eBusiness Center or should be mailed to you if your company is non-Title V.  Synthetic Minor facilities are required to use eBusiness Center: Air Services to submit these reports.  These reports are not applicable to Title V facilities.


3/1: EPCRA 311-312 (Tier II) report is due.  If your facility is subject to this report, you can download the free software reporting tool at http://www.epa.gov/emergencies/content/epcra/tier2.htm. Some states require the use of different software. Check our your state’s reporting requirements at http://www2.epa.gov/epcra/state-tier-ii-reporting-requirements-and-procedures.
