Development Data Flows
Prior to being able to receive data from users, a data flow goes through several phases along the development life cycle. These phases are are known as the four D's: Discovery, Design, Development and Deployment. CDX currently has 10 data flows at various stages in the development lifecycle.
CDX also has many data flows that are receiving data in Production

Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) Pilot
The Office of Water (OW) is working on a proposed rule, under Section 308 of the Clean Water Act, to require more detailed information on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) due the influence of effluent from CAFOs on surface water quality. The proposed rule will require CAFOs, approximately 10-20,000, to respond to a survey on their operations and is expected to be proposed in the spring of 2011 and finalized late summer 2012. OW wants to produce a CDX flow to collect an electronic version of the survey with digital signature. The project will be incremental, the first phase will produce a prototype flow to get feedback from submitters and evaluate the survey form.
Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (CSPP)
The CSPP system will allow for the collection of multiple lines of business for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP). These will include Pre-Manufacturer, Section 8d, Section 8e, Section 4, and FYI notices, among others. OPPT's TSCA Sections 8 data gathering activities provide data that EPA and others utilize to identify, assess, manage, and reduce actual or potential risks posed by exposure to existing chemical substances.
Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP)
EPA is developing requirements for the screening and testing of pesticides, commercial chemicals, and environmental contaminants for their potential to disrupt the endocrine system. When complete, EPA will use these validated methods or assays to identify and characterize the endocrine activity of pesticides, commercial chemicals, and environmental contaminants, specifically in relation to estrogen, androgen, and thyroid hormones.
FIFRA Cooperative Agreement Tracking System (FCATS)
The FCATS project will produce an online electronic tracking system. FCATS will use the EPA Central Data Exchange (CDX) to process and store information submitted to the Agency so that OECA can track compliance and enforcement activities by states and regions under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
Office of Water Integrated Reporting (OWIR)
This exchange enables participants to submit through the Exchange Network water quality assessment and spatial data associated with Integrated Reporting under the Clean Water Act.
State Implementation Plan (SIP)
EPA-approved State Implementation Plans (SIP) for states (i.e. Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming). The states prepare SIPs and submit them to EPA for approval to meet specific requirements of the Clean Air Act, including the requirement to attain and maintain the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).
Wood Heater Information Processing Systems (WHIPS)
The Wood Heater Information Program System is a headquarters program that administers and enforces provisions of the New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) for New Residential Wood Heaters at 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart AAA. The NSPS requires manufacturers of wood stoves to certify through emission testing and compliance certification review processes that each woodstove model line meets at particulate matter limit.
