The person preparing the report will need preparer permissions. The responsible official for the facility (plant manager or superintendent) may apply for preparer, certifier or site management permissions. In order to submit the Hazardous Waste report the site must have someone with certifier permissions. A user with the site management permission has the ability to approve and grant permissions (i.e. preparer, certifier or viewer) to other users requesting access to the site. Users with certifier or site manager permissions will need to complete the electronic signature agreement.
After you are logged in, request permissions for your site(s) by “Select Existing Site” button. Search by your locations EPA ID number. Once you have found and selected your site(s) of interest, you will be asked to request permissions for each module. There are four levels that you may request; none, viewer, preparer, and certifier. In order to certify and submit your Annual Report Submission the responsible office of the site must be at the Certifier level.
You will receive an email once the permissions for these sites have been granted (or denied). At that time, you may log back into the system and begin working on the site(s) as needed.
