Reporting Services

Our Reporting team can help you stay current on regulations, requirements, and reporting methods required by the Environmental Protection Agency. They can assist with Electronic Data Reports (EDRs), Permit Compliance Reports, Data Review, Low Mass Emitting (LME) units, and more.


Visit our Regulatory Services page to learn more about how we can assist you with Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Plans, Monitoring Plans, CEM and DAS audits, and training. Our analysts will ensure that your reports meet ever-changing requirements and are ready for final submission, saving you time and resources.


Electronic Data Reports (EDRs)

EDRs Processed Each Year
State Reports Processed Each Year

Our Reporting experts remotely access your data, generate an EDR, clean data, troubleshoot errors, and prepare files for submission to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through the Emissions Control Monitoring Plan System (ECMPS). They alert you in advance to issues that require additional attention, such as the exceedance of a maximum load or Maximum Potential Concentration (MPC).


Reporting services team members enter all applicable quarterly and annual Quality Assurance (QA) and Quarterly Certification (QC) Test data in StackVision for Part 75 reporting requirements. They carefully check the validity of Part 75 test information in ECMPS via a QA Certification EDR.

QA Certification Test Data Entry Includes:

Relative Accuracy Test Audit (RATA)Air Emissions Testing Body (AETB)
Protocol Gas Verification Program (PGVP)Linearity
Flow-to-LoadFuel Flowmeter Accuracy
Fuel Flow-to-LoadOrifice Plate Inspections
Transmitter / Transducer TestsAppendix E NOx Correlation Tests

Permit Compliance Reports

The Reporting team remotely accesses your system, reviews data for exceedances and downtime, troubleshoot errors, and generates quarterly reports required for permit compliance that are available in StackVision and Prism.


If you are subject to PADEP Revision 8, ESC Spectrum can prepare and verify your Rev. 8 Emissions EDRs in PADEP CEMDPS.

Data Review Services

CEMS DAS Services including Reporting Services

ESC Spectrum’s knowledgeable Reporting analysts will check your system, weekly or monthly, to ensure proper and accurate data collection. They alert you to any problems and eliminate any risk of missing data to keep you in compliance.

Low Mass Emitting (LME) Services

40 CFR Part 75.19 provides an alternative monitoring methodology for certain qualifying oil- and gas-fired units to estimate SO2, CO2, and/or NOx emissions input in lieu of a CEMS. Units may qualify for the Low Mass Emissions (LME) methodology.

LME Reporting

LME plans are required to report for emissions and QA. In April 2023, the EPA announced that ECMPS 2.0 will not support LME file creation. They stated, “ECMPS 2.0 will no longer include the ability to prepare LME emissions files. Affected LME users will need to explore other options outside ECMPS for preparing quarterly emissions files.” The ESC Spectrum Team is standing by to assist with current ECMPS and ECMPS 2.0 LME reporting.

LME Conversions

Changing an existing unit in the Acid Rain Program to be classified as LME can only occur at the year’s end – the new status began on January 1, 2024. Plants must have submitted the paperwork for this classification change before mid-November. The ESC Spectrum team can help review facility data to determine if changing to an LME makes sense.
