NetDMR Accessing and Retaining Data

Once a DMR has been submitted electronically using NetDMR, it will be stored electronically. Records for all DMRs that have been submitted will be available to download and view in what is known as a Copy of Record (COR). In addition, any attachments that were included with the DMR are available for download. Because of this, DEC will not require permittees to maintain physical copies of DMRs. To review previously submitted DMRs, use the following steps to access a Copy of Record.

  1. Log in to NetDMR. On the home screen, select the desired SPDES permit number from the drop down list in the "All DMRs & Copies of Record" section.
  2. Click "Update," and then click "Search."
  3. On the Results screen, find the desired DMR to view a COR for. On the left hand side, ensure the next step selected is "View CORs." Click "Go."
  4. The DMR Copy of Record page is displayed. Information about the DMR is displayed, including submitted DMR data. The authorized signatory who submitted the DMR is displayed at the bottom of the page, along with the date and time the DMR was submitted.

The COR may be downloaded in an XML or PDF format. NOTE: The PDF version is difficult to read, as it attempts to put all parameters on one page. The COR is not required to be downloaded.
