Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule

Status of CROMERR Applications from States

On this page:


The information on this page reflects the status of CROMERR applications received from states as of June 2017. 

Overall CROMERR Application Progress Statistics

June 2017 highlights:

  • Over 100 applications received since CROMERR's inception have been approved.  This over 90% of the total.  Almost half of these applications have been received within the past 2 years. 
  • More than 80% of current applicants pursue commercial off-the-shelf  or EPA Central Data Exchange (CDX) Shared CROMERR Services electronic reporting approaches.  These applicants are often approved within 6-12 weeks and benefit from greatly reduced CROMERR application burden as well as overall system development and maintenance burden.   Applicants pursuing custom-developed approaches are typically approved within 6-12 months because all aspects of the approach must be reviewed for CROMERR compliance.  These applicants also develop and maintain all aspects of their approach's CROMERR compliance.
  • Approximately 50% state environmental agencies have been approved for "enterprise" systems designed with the vision of providing for CROMERR-compliant reporting across that agency's EPA-authorized programs.  This approval does not prohibit state environmental agencies from pursuing additional systems.  Further, some EPA programs are delegated to other state-level agencies.  An additional 5-10 state environmental agencies are planning for "enterprise" systems within the next 2-5 years.

NOTE:  The above statistics exclude applications withdrawn in process, typically due to change in system approach.  Amended applications are counted as one.  New applications from previously approved systems submitted for the purposes of adding authorized programs or for the evaluation of significant changes to approved functionality are counted as two.

Number of unique CROMERR applications submitted by state 

Map indicating total number of applications received from each stateFigure 1 indicates the number of unique CROMERR applications submitted formally by each state regardless of status. Note that a single application submitted may cover multiple EPA-authorized programs and may contain multiple systems, or one system may collect multiple regulatory reports. So, the number of applications submitted is not necessarily reflective of a state's relative progress towards electronic reporting under its EPA-authorized programs.

Status of each state's CROMERR approval progress under its EPA-authorized programs

Map of percentages of approved programs by stateFigure 2 indicates the status of a state's overall CROMERR approval progress under its EPA-authorized programs under title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The map reflects state-level EPA-authorized programs with planned or existing electronic reporting across multiple agencies within that state. It shows the overall progress towards approval by state agencies for those EPA-authorized programs for which they currently plan to apply for or are actively seeking EPA approval under CROMERR. Approval is not necessarily reflective of electronic reporting availability, and states may have additional EPA-authorized programs for which there are currently no known electronic reporting plans.

Status of formal CROMERR applications from state agencies

The table below represents the status of formal CROMERR applications received by EPA from state agencies for both planned or existing electronic reporting systems. 

Please note: 

  • States and territories not listed on this table have no known planned or existing systems known to EPA that are subject to CROMERR.
  • System names may be working names or the name of the off-the-shelf product used for the system; the state may have other names for the system.
  • Approved systems may provide CROMERR compliance for multiple legacy or backend systems which are not reflected in this table.
  • Some states are allowed to continue operating legacy systems while they work towards CROMERR-compliant reporting.
  • EPA approval of a CROMERR application does not necessarily reflect a system’s availability nor the ability to submit particular regulatory information electronically.
  • EPA publishes notices regarding the approval of CROMERR applications in the Federal Register. Access all CROMERR Federal Register notices to see the official record of approved applications.

Table Definitions:

Known System Subject to CROMERR: The state agency has an existing system subject to CROMERR or plans for an electronic reporting system that, if pursued, would result in a subject system. EPA is awaiting a formal application for the system.

Application Submitted: EPA has received a formal application from the state agency reflecting one or more systems and is in the processing of reviewing this application or has provided feedback to state and is awaiting further action by the state.

Application Approved: EPA has officially approved an application reflecting one or more systems submitted by a state agency.
