Overview 

The Environmental Performance Reporting (EPR) has been introduced to provide a simple system for licensees to comply with your data reporting obligations. It captures the key statistics on your performance over the reporting year based on results of your monitoring and assessment. 

The EPR collects data needed to fulfil your reporting requirements, including your statutory obligations, for  

  • Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR)  
  • Large Combustion Plant Directive (LCP)  
  • Annual waste management statistics 

EPR is part of our overall objective to promote efficient and effective work practices, reduce duplication in reporting and improve communications with EPA licensed facilities. 

2020 Reporting Cycle 

The deadline for completed submissions is 31 March each year. 

You may access and start entering your 2020 reports from 01 January 2021.  Any data entered on the EPR webform can be viewed and edited until you make your submission.  

All EPR communications take place via the EDEN Portal. 

Additional tabs were added to the EPR form on 12th March 2021 for landfills and ‘NTFSO brokered waste’ (this is waste you arrange to be transferred from where it is generated to a facility abroad, i.e. the waste does not enter your facility).   

***PLEASE NOTE: If asked to "confirm if you have cross-checked your data with collector records on the NWCPO Eden platform” - this feature will not be available in 2021 Please tick the box and move on through the form. 

To fulfil your EPR reporting obligation: 

  1. Log in to your EDEN Portal > Authorisation Module and navigate to the EPR Module.  Please ensure that your EDEN login and user access details are up-to-date and that all relevant persons involved in entering and reviewing EPR data within your organization are set up to do so on the EDEN Portal. 
  2. Open and follow the EPR Guidance Document Version 3 March 2021: All Reporters 
  3. Enter the required data into each relevant Tab of your EPR, based on your records 
  4. When complete, submit the EPR using the mechanism at the Submission tab of the EPR Module

About EPR 

The first phase of the Environmental Performance Reporting on-line reporting application was launched on 1st February 2019. This phase met, and replaced, the Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) and Large Combustion Plant (LCP) statutory reporting requirements as well as some waste statistics reporting requirements.  

The second phase was launched on 1st January 2021 and brings online all remaining waste data reporting. This means that EPA will no longer be seeking submissions for separate annual waste statistics surveys.  

The EPA welcomes any feedback on the EPR reporting application – please send your comments to EPRTeam@epa.ie
