The Environmental Performance Reporting (EPR) module 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 webform collects the data needed to fulfil your reporting requirements, including your statutory obligations, for:
The EPR system is part of our overall objective to promote efficient and effective work practices, reduce duplication in reporting and improve communications with EPA licensed facilities.
You may access and start entering your 2021 reports from 01 January 2022. Data entered on the EPR webform can be viewed and edited until you make your submission.
The deadline for completed submissions is 31 March each year.
All EPR communications take place via the EDEN Portal.
Additional guidance for waste statistics reporting is available here (this includes Explanation of Recovery and Disposal Codes, Additional Breakdown of List of Waste entries, Guidance for estimating quantity of waste generated on-site).
Calculation toolsets are provided for the following sectors:
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 in January 2021 and brought online all remaining waste data reporting. This means that EPA will no longer be issuing separate annual waste statistics surveys.
The EPA welcomes any feedback on the EPR reporting application – please send your comments to EPRTeam@epa.ie
In 2021, the EPA surveyed data reporters on their experience of using the EPR application. A report on the survey findings is available here.
