If reporting to EPA rather Start Printed Page 59749than authorized programs, § 3.10 of CROMERR requires submission of an electronic document to EPA's Central Data Exchange, or “to another EPA electronic document receiving system that the Administrator may designate for the receipt of specified submissions[.]” This notice is intended to designate certain EPA electronic document receiving systems for receipt of submissions under CROMERR, as discussed below.

B. Today's Action

In accordance with 40 CFR 3.10, EPA hereby designates for the receipt of electronic submissions, all EPA electronic document receiving systems currently existing and receiving electronic reports as of the date of this notice. This designation is valid for a period of up to two years from the date of publication of this notice. During this two-year period, entities that report directly to EPA may continue to satisfy EPA reporting requirements by reporting to the same systems as they did prior to CROMERR's publication unless EPA publishes a notice that announces changes to, or migration from, that system.

Any existing systems continuing to receive electronic reports at the expiration of this two-year period must receive redesignation by the Administrator under § 3.10. Notice of such redesignation will be published in the Federal Register.
