Part 75 (P75) Lessons Learned from Jon Konings at ESC - Section B: A Starting Point for Developing In-House and Site Specific Procedures and Helpful Tools
This recommendation has no origin in the P75 regulations. The regulations only require the submission of a clean EDR (electronic data reporting) file in the approved EPA format (XML) within the 30-day period following the completion of each calendar quarter. Instead of waiting until the end of the quarter to generate and process the QA (Quality Assurance) and emissions EDR files through ECMPS, it is recommended that you generate and process these EDR files on a more frequent basis, in this case, monthly. Through this process you are breaking up the calendar quarter into smaller and more manageable pieces.
Note: when evaluating an emissions file for a time range less than a full calendar quarter, you will get error messages from ECMPS for the dates not included. You can ignore these message. For example, if you generated a file for just April, and ECMPS says you did not include records for May and June, that’s OK. Just focus on any errors for the records in April.
