Thank you for participating in the EPA Integrated Error Correction Process. As part of EPA's ongoing
efforts to improve the quality of the data it provides to the public, this process enables those outside of the Agency
to directly notify EPA of a data error. The error notification is routed to
the appropriate person, usually in a state environmental agency or EPA regional office who has the authority to make corrections.
This process is not intended to replace normal state or EPA error correction procedures. This is a notification and error tracking effort. It is not intended to be a data collection effort for the regulated community to report to states or EPA.
This Error Notification interface allows you to easily report data errors. You may:
- Simply highlight the area of the text that you
would like to report an error on and use the browser's "COPY"
function and then "PASTE" the copied text into the Error
Information part of the form. You should then add your own comments at the
end of the Pasted text to inform us of the problematic information and how
you want that changed.
- Type the information directly on the Error Notification interface. For example, if the street address is incorrect, you would enter: The street number should be 1546 Everestt Avenue instead of 156 Evertree Avenue.
You must enter identifying information so that we may keep you involved in the error correction process. This information is not made available for any other purposes (see Notice of Use). EPA will notify you of the progress of your reported error and may ask for additional information or documentation, if they are needed. EPA does not accept anonymously submitted errors.
The Error Notification interface provides ample space for you to type a description of the data error. Please include enough information to allow EPA to identify and evaluate the data in question (if not already captured on the form through the highlighting process). See Tips on how to successfully describe an error. Be sure to include a description of where you identified the error and what you believe to be the correct value.
Alternatively, you may provide the same information via:
- E-mail: ErrorTracker@epa.gov
You have helped EPA to Set the Record Straight!
Notice of UseEPA will use the personal identifying information which you provide only for the expressed purpose of responding to your error notification and will not make this information available for other purposes. The Agency does not sell or otherwise transfer personal information to a third party. EPA will not accept anonymously submitted errors.
If you wish to file a complaint about a facility, please use the option File a Complaint at the EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance website.
EPA strives to respond to every submitted error as quickly as possible. A State or EPA representative may contact you if additional information or documentation is required. The error will be routed to a State or EPA staff person who can evaluate and resolve the data in question. You will be informed when and where your error is routed. Most errors will be routed within 2 to 4 working days. It may take a month or longer before data corrections are reflected. You will be informed of the final disposition of the data in question and of any significant delays that may occur. Click here to view the work flow process chart that shows how error notifications will be handled. Feel free to contact the Error Correction Center at any time to check on the status of your error notification.
Please bear in mind that the Integrated Error Correction Process is not designed to provide answers to information requests regarding EPA policy. If we receive information that does not fall within the purview of the EPA/State Integrated Error Correction Process, we will attempt to refer these requests to the appropriate person or agency.
This process is not intended to be a substitution for State or EPA system-specific standard operating procedures. This is a notification and error tracking effort. It is not intended to be a data collection effort for the regulated community to report to states or EPA.
