Frequent Questions

Will EPA waive penalties imposed for late reports if reports are late due to mechanical or electronic failures?

EPA will not waive penalties arising from late reporting. Reports must be submitted within the times specified in the regulations. EPA believes that parties have ample time (approximately 60 days) to prepare and submit reports following each reporting period. In an individual case where a report is filed late for reasons shown by the reporter to be outside of the reporter's control, EPA may exercise enforcement discretion in determining what enforcement action is appropriate.(7/1/94)
