Reporting

Companies that have been issued an air pollution control permit to operate by the Department may be required to submit various reports to the Department.

If you have an issued Permit to Construct or Permit to Operate, please address questions to your facility's state Compliance Manager (see Permit Portal for your state contact).

Questions may be addressed to the North Dakota Department of Health at 701.328.5188, or email AirQuality@nd.gov.


Each facility is assigned a DoAQ staff member for handling compliance questions and reporting review. The contact can be found through our Permit Portal. Questions and reports may be addressed to your compliance manager.


The Department is working towards making required reporting available through our Electronic Reporting Information System (ERIS). Many programs within the Environmental Health Section allow some or all of their reporting requirements to be submitted electronically. Within the Division of Air Quality's Permitting and Compliance Program, Title V facilities are able to submit their Annual Compliance Certification Report and Semi-Annual Monitoring Reports through ERIS. This system is CROMERR compliant.

To Set-up ERIS Access:
  1. Sign-up for a North Dakota Login (if you don't have one already)

  2. Complete the Subscriber Agreement (SFN 60908) and mail it to the Department. Please allow two weeks to authorize and activate your account. You will receive an email when your account has been activated.

For some regulations, the EPA and not the North Dakota Department of Health is the implementation and reporting agency. For reporting emissions and other records to EPA contact EPA Region 8 at:

    Director, Air & Radiation Program (8P-AR)
    U.S. EPA - Region 8
    1595 Wynkoop Street
    Denver, CO 80202-1129

More information, including EPA's on-line reporting systems can be found through the EPA'sTechnology Transfer Network Clearinghouse for Inventories & Emission Factors and through EPA's Central Data Exchange (CDX) .


The report is submitted annually within 45 days after December 31 by facilities operating under a major (Title V) permit to operate. The emissions units to be listed are identified by specific monitoring requirements by air contaminant, emission limit, monitoring method, and reporting requirements as listed in the permit to operate.

  Submit Electronically through ERIS   


The report is submitted semi-annually within 45 days after June 30 and December 31 by facilities operating under a major (Title V) permit to operate. The report lists deviations from monitoring requirements, and deviations from emission limits or parameters set by the operating permit during the reporting period. For facilities subject to compliance assurance monitoring (CAM), the report will list any CAM excursions or deviations for affected emission units.

  Submit Electronically through ERIS   


At the beginning of each year, the Department will send letters to the company AEIR contact person responsible for submitting emission inventory reports. The reports will address operations during the previous year (January 1-December 31) and are due by March 15 unless a later date is specified in the permit.

Annual Production Reports are included in the AEIR reporting program.

Emission data are used to determine compliance with regard to emission limits and/or permit conditions; to identify emission levels, patterns, and trends; to serve as the basis for modeling of predicted pollutant concentrations in ambient air; to provide input for human health risk assessment studies; and to serve as a basis for determining annual permit-to-operate fees.

Emission inventories should be as accurate and complete as possible. Emission data should be included for each significant unit/activity listed on the Air Pollution Control Permit to Operate for the installation. The following methodologies can be used to determine emissions:
