Q802. Which facilities are given an orange facility symbol in FLIGHT?
A802. EPA verifies annual reports using a combination of electronic checks and manual reviews to identify potential errors. EPA notifies reporters of a potential error and allows them up to 75 days to address it, either by fixing the error and resubmitting their annual report or by providing an acceptable explanation. In addition, reporters are required to notify EPA upon discovering a potential error and are allowed up to 75 days to address it. An annual report has met EPA’s verification requirements when it appears not to contain any potential errors based on EPA’s checks and review and/or the reporter has provided an acceptable explanation for any potential errors.
A facility is given an orange symbol when it has not met EPA’s verification requirements.
