All permits are able to submit DMRs via NetDMR.
If you would like to double check,
As of Decemeber 21, 2016, all facilities required to submit DMRs electronically via NetDMR. If you have not requested access to NetDMR, do so as soon as possible. While waiting for your request to be approved, continue submitting hardcopy DMRs so your data is submitted ontime.
Each person accessing NetDMR must set up their own account. You must have a valid email address. You may not use another individual’s email address. If you do not have a work or personal email address, you should create one. You will then set up security questions and a password (both are case sensitive).
When setting up your CDX/NetDMR account, you must choose one of the user types below:
DO NOT choose Internal User. This is reserved for State and Federal Agency users.
Email email@example.com with the user ID and email address associated with your NetDMR account and we will assist you.
On the NetDMR login page:
You will receive an email containing a link to reset your password. Be sure to click the link only once. If you are still experiencing issues, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-890-1995 for help.
Log in to NetDMR. On the Central Data Exchange page:
If you can't log in because you have forgotten the answers, email email@example.com or call 888-890-1995 for help.
You must request and be approved access to your permit to be able to view DMRs. Click the "Request Access” link at the top left of the NetDMR Home Page and follow the prompts to begin this process to request signatory, permit administrator, edit or view rights.
Make sure you selected "NDMR-LA: NetDMR: Louisiana DEQ" as your State Agency (program service). You must enter all letters and numbers; ex: LAG157534.
If your permit ID still is not available for NetDMR, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your permit number and name of your facility.
When requesting access to your permit(s) within NetDMR, you must choose at least one following user roles:
Only users requesting “Signatory” rights will be required to fill out and submit a Subscriber Agreement (electronically or via paper). These users must meet the regulatory requirements for being a signatory or a delegated signatory (LAC 33:IX.2503). Delegated signatories will be required to enter the name, position title, phone number, and email address for the primary signatory that is delegating authority.
Certain individuals are designated primary signatory authorities and may sign DMRs without prior signatory delegation; i.e. mayors, plant managers, company owners, etc. Signatory rights may be delegated to other individuals who meet the criteria found in LAC 33:IX.2503.B. If you are not already delegated signatory authorization to sign DMRs, you will need to be delegated by a primary signatory authority. No separate signatory delegation letter is required. If you have further questions on who can be a signatory, or who can receive signatory delegation, contact us at email@example.com.
LDEQ will receive your subscriber agreement and prepare your permit for NetDMR. First, the subscriber agreement will be reviewed for accuracy. Then, the signatory will receive an approval email from the LDEQ Permit Compliance Unit. Last, the signatory will receive a follow-up email once the limits are ready and NetDMR can be used.
Click “My Account” at the top left of the NetDMR Home Page. Under “My Permits” will be listed the permits you have requested or granted access to. Click the printer icon in the “Subscriber Agreement” column to view the Subscriber Agreement with the option to print.
Signatory access can only be approved by LDEQ. Edit, View, and additional Permit Administrator rights are approved by the facility’s previously approved Signatory or Permit Administrator.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and explain your problem.
Double check the DMR against your current permit. If the information is not up to date with the current permit, email email@example.com with corrections.
Click the “Add Attachment” button on the DMR screen. Click “Browse…” and select the document you wish to attach to the DMR. Although NetDMR accepts other file formats, for EDMS purposes, LDEQ only accepts PDF files. To avoid uploading issues, make the PDF file name simple and with no special characters.
Hard Errors (e.g. alpha character in a numeric only field, etc.) must be fixed in order the save the DMR.
Soft Errors must be addressed by reviewing the data. If the data is wrong, enter the correct data. If the data is correct, check the boxes in the “Acknowledge” column. Click “Save & Continue” then check status of the DMR.
Once all validation errors are addressed, the DMR status should read NetDMR Validated.
Security questions used to sign and submit DMRs within NetDMR can only be updated by the Central Data Exchange (CDX) helpdesk. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-890-1995 for help with your security questions.
After the DMR has been signed and submitted, a COR (Copy of Record) is created. It is recommended that the CORs be downloaded to a local computer for ease of access during an inspection. **Hardcopy records will not be required for electronic submittals.**
Search for the DMR you wish to revise. Select “Correct DMR” in the drop down menu and click “GO”. Edit the DMR and click “Save & Continue”. Address any hard or soft errors. Once the DMR status is "NetDMR Validated", alert the permit signatory to sign and submit the revised DMR.
Permit Administrators may add additional email addresses to receive DMR submission notifications by clicking “Permits” under the Search tab at the top of the page. Enter the permit ID and click Search. Scroll to the bottom of the page and enter the additional email addresses, one at a time, that you want to receive DMR submission acknowledgments.
