Emissions Collection and Monitoring Plan System (ECMPS)

EPA is looking for people who are interested in testing a MATS Beta version of the ECMPS Client Tool. Registration is open to all users, however, EPA would prefer testers with currently installed Hg systems or DAHS vendors who would be able to provide XML files which support MATS reporting. EPA will NOT be providing MATS test data or XML files which support MATS reporting. Testers will be responsible for providing data with which to test the MATS functionality in the Client Tool.

The deadline for registration is Monday, April 28, 2014.

Information about how to register as a tester can be found here. Link to EPA's External Link Disclaimer

You must be a Designated Representative or an ECMPS Agent to use the ECMPS Client Tool.

Limited access to the ECMPS Client Tool is provided for Test Contractors/Environmental Consultants.

ECMPS Additional Information

Beginning with the first quarter of 2009, all industry sources began using the Emissions Collection and Monitoring Plan System (ECMPS) to submit monitoring plan, QA/cert test and emissions data to the EPA for the Acid Rain and CAIR programs. ECMPS uses an XML-based data format, and provides the necessary data evaluation and submission functionality.

Project Overview

EPA’s Clean Air Markets Division (CAMD) re-engineered the process and data systems associated with emissions, monitoring plan, and certification data. As part of the project, CAMD reviewed how monitoring plan information, certification/recertification applications, on-going quality assurance data, and emissions data are maintained, quality assured, and submitted. CAMD also reviewed the tools available for checking and submitting data on a quarterly and ozone season basis.

Once the review was complete, CAMD developed a number of goals for the ECMPS project. They included:
