How to Use EMTS to Report Transactions for Fuel Programs

New Procedures for RFS Compliance Reporting Coming Soon

Starting Thursday, October 25, 2018, organizations will be able to use e-Signature to sign the Copy of Record for EPA Moderated Transaction System (EMTS) transactions.  Organizations will NO LONGER be required to upload the following files into the Fuels Reporting system (DCFUEL) beginning with 2018 Quarter 4 Reporting:

  • RIN Generation Report: A report that includes details on the batches of RINs that a reporting party generated during the quarter.
  • RIN Transaction Report: A report that includes details on the Buy, Sell, Separate, and Retire transactions a reporting party submitted during the quarter.

The deadline for 2018 Quarter 4 reporting is March 31, 2019. For a Job Aid on this task, see: How to Use e-Signature to Sign RIN Transaction Reports in EMTS.

The EPA Moderated Transaction System (EMTS) was designed to allow companies to report and track transactions for Fuel Programs. Currently, there are two types of transactions that are reported in EMTS:

  • Renewable Identification Number (RIN) transactions under the Renewable Fuel Standard
  • Fuels Averaging, Banking, and Trading (ABT) credit transactions under the Gasoline Sulfur program

Follow these steps to report transactions for Fuel Programs using EMTS:

STEP 1: Determine whether the submitter has access to EMTS.
