Emission Inventory System
Exporting Data for TEISS
• EIS will allow exports of YOUR data• State data requires state permission
for READ access
A snapshot (facility and emissions) gives you detailed information to include units, processes and release points in a format to import into TEISS
First select the Facility Snapshot bar.
For a facility snapshot, select the agencyof interest. I am signed on as North Carolinabut notice that I have access to additionalagencies which have allowed me to READtheir data.
Next select the data category.In this case it would be Facility Inventory.
There are two links available, request and download. If request is selecteda new snapshot will be generated overnight. If you select Download, you will download the latest snapshot generated on the Last Generation Date.
When you select “Download”, a box will open with a link to the file.Select that link and the File Download box will open. Select “Save” andselect the location for the file. Files are downloaded in a zipped file format.To import these files into TEISS, the files must be unzipped and thexml file extracted to your directory.
An emissions snapshot is done the same way except you need to select a dataset under the Emissions Snapshot filter and select Point in the Data Category filter. In this case, select the appropriate inventory year for your agency.

23Overview (cont.)Emissions Inventory System
Emissions Summary by Geography• Used to look at point, nonpoint, onroad, and
nonroad• Runs every 15 minutes and downloads in .csv• Reports can be done on a national, regional,
state/tribe, or county level• Reports can be done by Data Category (Point,
Nonpoint, etc); Sectors (Ag, Fires, Dust, etc); or by SCC
There are additional reports which can be used for analysis. Thesereports cannot be uploaded into TEISS, but open in Excel. Oneof the best reports is the emissions summary by geography report.
At the top of the page are highlighteditems which are required to be selectedto run the summary report. For this examplewe will use the State/Tribal by SCC
Next you need to select the datasetthat you wish to summarize. You caneither select what your agency has submitted,or you may select the dataset representingwhat EPA will publish on our public website.These selections will be a combination of bothagency data and EPA data.
Next you are required to select either a specific pollutant code by usingthe search box; or you may use the preselected groups represented byActive CAPS; Active HAPs, etc. For this example we have selected NOx.Next you have additional filters, such as a specific agency, data category,sector, or SCC. When selections are done, select Run Report or RequestDownload.
If you select “Run Report”, reportis returned to screen where you candownload immediately by using:Download Results: CSV. If your selectionis too large; you will receive a messagethat you must Request a Download.These reports are generated overnight.
Reports may be downloaded the next day from the “ReportsDownload” link. If you select the magnifying glass, you are ableto see the specific filters for the report being downloaded.
31If you select Open, the file will automatically open into an Excel spreadsheet.
Emissions Summaries by Facility• A report that gives you emissions summed to
facility, unit, process or release point level• Reports run every 15 minutes, available in .csv
format under Report Downloads on sidebar.• .csv may be imported easily into Excel
spreadsheet or Access database• Reports can also be done by Facility Type, NAICS
or SCC• Cannot be imported into TEISS
Select “By Facility” under Emission Summaries.
Required filters are highlighted. Forour example, we will select a facilitylevel report.
Next, a dataset needs to be selected.similar to the emissions summary. You mayselect a specific inventory year for youragency or EPA’s public selection.
The last required filter is pollutant code.Additional optional filters are then availableto refine your selection. Then selectRun Report or Request Download.
Submitting Your Data• In TEISS, indicate if you are sending data to QA Environment or
Production before exporting• What is the QA Environment?
– Codes– Required Data Elements– Ranges– Conditional Checks
• What is the Production Environment?– Official submission– Same checks as the QA Environment
• Zip your exported xml file from TEISS• Open the Web Client
Use your same login and passwordthat you use for the EIS Gateway. Change the Domain to “IAMLdap”
Select “EIS” on the sidebar.
40Browse for the zipped xml file which you exported from TEISS. Alsoadd your email address to the Notify box. Then click Submit.
Notifications• Two emails from CDX
• Pending• Processed or Failed
• Validation of File Format
• One email from “noreply”• Notification that file has gone through QA
and feedback report is available for review
Feedback Reports• Important sections
• Statistics• Critical Errors
• Informational• Warning Errors
• What do you do if you receive critical errors?• Correct them in TEISS• Export a new xml file• Zip the file• Send again
The statistics page is one of the most importantpages of the feedback report. The number of addsshould equal the number of records submitted. Another important page is the Critical Errorsworksheet. All errors on this page must be rectifiedprior of submission to Production.
