NetDMR Signing and Submitting the DMR

Once a DMR has all appropriate data entered, it must be signed by an authorized signatory and submitted electronically. There are two methods to get to the Sign and Submit page for a DMR.

  • From the Home page, search for the DMR you would like to sign and Submit. Once the list of DMRs appears, select "Sign and Submit DMR" from the drop down next to the desired DMR and click Go.
  • If you are currently editing the DMR on the Edit DMR page, once it is complete scroll to the bottom of the page. Click "Sign and Submit" at the bottom of the page
  1. On the Sign and Submit DMR page, there are several actions that need to be done before a DMR can successfully be submitted.
    1. Make sure to check both the "Include in Submission" and "Add COR and Attachments to Email Notification" boxes on the left side of the screen. This ensures that your DMR will be submitted, and any included attachments as well as an electronic copy will be sent to DEC.
    2. Review any soft errors with the DMR. You may submit a DMR with soft errors, such as violations.
    3. Review the certification statement at the bottom of the page. You are authorizing that all data included in the DMR is correct, accurate, and non-falsified. Answer the security question selected from your list when you created your account and submit. Enter your password and submit.
  2. This will take you to the Submission Confirmation page. You will receive a confirmation ID number, and may view the Copy of Record created for the DMR.
