Instructions for Completing the ACE Reporting Application

The application (PDF) (30 KB) is in two parts: "Compliance Certification" and "Emission Inventory Statement." You may apply for either or both, according to your facility's needs. We recommend you read the detailed information about the E-Reporting option on our web site.

Please complete the form according to the instructions below. Call our office at (518) 402-8507 if you have any questions about this application form.

Facility Details

This part must be filled in completely, beginning with the DEC-assigned facility ID.

  • DECID - each facility will have an ID.
  • Facility Name - associated with the specific DECID.
  • Facility Location - geographic address of the Facility associated with the DECID.

Facility Responsible Official (RO)

  • Only one RO is required, however, a facility may designate more than one. An RO is defined by paragraph 6 NYCRR 201-2(b)(28) as "A president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, general partner, proprietor, principal executive officer, ranking elected official, or any other person who performs policy or decision making functions and is authorized to legally bind a corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship, or government entity which operates a facility that is subject to the provisions of this Part."
  • For each type of reporting (Compliance Certification and Emission Inventory), each RO must provide a notarized signature page. For example, if a facility designates two ROs for Certification and Emission, there must be a total of four signature pages.
  • Provide all of the address and contact information requested for the Responsible Official where he or she is headquartered.

Editor and Reviewer: Certification (Compliance), and Emission Statement

  • Applicants for these roles do not require notarized signatures.
  • Provide all of the address and contact information requested where he or she is headquartered.
