In December, EPA released revised EDR v2.1 and v2.2 for format documents and associated reporting instructions for the Acid Rain and NOX Budget Programs. While this is the first revision to the reporting formats and instructions since March 2003, the changes are very minor. Two new record types, RT 532 and RT 617, have been added for sources using CTM-041. There are a number of additional codes and a rather undeft change in the reporting instructions regarding the reporting of load bins for common and multiple stack units. Frankly, given the nature of revisions, is surprising that the Agency simply did not defer the modifications until implementation of XML reporting in 2009. Copies of the new EDR format documents and reporting instructions are located on our FTP Library.
