Select Jurisdictions

Select Jurisdictions

Jurisdictions refer to the reporting context relevant for a particular location. In other words, the system offers support for state fields where applicable.

  1. Once the effort has been created and data has been synced, the system prompts you to verify that the appropriate Jurisdictions have been selected for each facility in the Reporting Effort. The system will attempt to assign an appropriate Jurisdiction using the facility’s State abbreviation, if available.
  2. If the Facility does not have a State abbreviation that corresponds to a Jurisdiction, then the Federal Jurisdiction will be used. If a Facility does not have a State abbreviation, which typically occurs if the Facility Information is incomplete, then the system flags the facility as Indeterminate Jurisdiction, and prompts the user to select an appropriate Jurisdiction. Facilities that have an Indeterminate Jurisdiction are highlighted in red.jurisdictions.png
  3. To change a Facility’s Jurisdiction, click on the drop down field next to the Facility Name and select a Jurisdiction from the list. If the Facility has a state-specific Jurisdiction, the relevant state fields can be completed on the Facility Information page. (NOTE: State fields will not appear on the PDF report generated by the system. However, the system will also generate T2S files that can be imported into the EPA Tier II Submit software).
  4. Once all Facilities in the Reporting Effort have an appropriate Jurisdiction, click the btn3

     

    NOTE: If there is a large amount of data to validate, you can log off and come back to the Reporting Effort at a later time. A Notification will be delivered to the Notification Center when the Validation step has been completed. Depending on user settings, the notifications can be forwarded to an email address configured in User Management.
