Transition from EIS to ERIC
In June 2005, DEQ convened a stakeholder meeting to kick off the project that was designed to update and enhance the existing emissions inventory reporting system. Based upon input from that initial meeting and a number of smaller workgroup meetings, DEQ developed a scope of services. In July 2006, DEQ entered into a contract with ENVIRON Corporation to perform the work. In early April 2007, the ERIC system was launched. This new system is a web based application that utilizes a secure login, and many other features designed to make it easier and faster for facilities to report their emissions data in accordance with the requirements of sections 919 and 5107 of the air regulations.
In order to ensure that facilities understood the reporting changes for their 2006 data and that they had adequate time to submit their first inventories in the ERIC system, DEQ provided guidance thru issuance of three potpourri notices. The last of these was published on May 20, 2007 and extended the reporting deadlines for both EI and TEDI until September 1, 2007.
2012 Reporting Year Resources
Consultants were reminded that DEQ does not grant them access to a facility's ERIC account. They must make a request in the ERIC system and then follow up with the facility's ERIC Account Administrator to have them act on their request. For more information, please refer to the ERIC User Manual or to the "How Do I" Guide that are both posted under the Quick Links section of the ERIC main page.
Hours/year (hr/yr) was added to the list of available annual throughput units on the Process tab.
With regards to 2012 being a leap year:
If a source operated year round, emissions should be calculated using 8784 hours/year and then facilities should report 24 hours, 7 days, 52 weeks (8760 hours/year) on the process.
