Introduction: Background on CROMERR
Welcome to Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Regulation (CROMERR) 101: Fundamentals for States, Tribes, and Local Governments.
This course is designed for states, tribes, and local governments that:
- Administer EPA-authorized programs under Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR)
- Accept or wish to accept electronic reports.
The course consists of nine lessons, which are listed to the left in the menu bar. You may select any lesson from this menu at any time or use the Back and Next buttons to access the training in sequence.
Please note that this training does not apply to direct reporters. If you report directly to EPA, select this link for more information.
Throughout the course, you will encounter certain words and phrases that appear as blue, hyperlinked text. These are key terms that have specific meaning. By selecting the blue words, which are hyperlinks, the CROMERR definition of that term will appear in a pop up box.
In addition, print icons are provided in the top right-hand corner of each page. By selecting these icons, you may print the entire content of each page, even if that content is minimized or hidden. If you are accessing this training with a screen reader, you may print all content on each page by using the browser's normal print functionality.
Also, back and next links are provided to the right above and below all page content to allow quick navigation through the course pages. On pages where course content is particularly substantive, these back and next links will instead move you through important sub-points.
