How to Become IT Compliant

According to the current regulation for electronic reporting, there are a list of requirements that must be met before a system can begin collecting environmental data electronically; commonly referred to as CROMERR (CROss Media Electronic Reporting Rule). The requirements can be grouped into the following ways. Read more at their site.

  • User Registration

    This portion covers the topics of users establishing their accounts in the system. After users provide information about themselves, the system administrator then reviews this information and provides the users with system privileges and signing credentials.

  • Id Proofing

    This portion requires users to have their identity verified as part of the registration process prior to submitting reports electronically. An identity can be verified one of two ways: by an unbiased service provider (e.g., LexisNexis) or handwritten signature as part of an electronic signature agreement process.

  • e-Signature

    This portion requires an approach to ensure the content remains unchanged by the time the electronic signature is applied to the submission. After the electronic signature is applied, the system needs to ensure the signer is authorized to sign and the signature is valid.

  • Document Submission

    This portion requires a mechanism to ensure the electronic report is retrieved as an error-free transmission and that the submitter is able to view what was submitted as the copy of record.

  • Enforcement Action

    This portion requires a mechanism allowing submitters to rescind or flag submissions that should not be considered official copies of record.
