The system calculates the threshold quantities for the products used in day-to-day operations, generates summary reports, and formats your submission to the government.
The NPRI module captures data from ALL applicable sources and uses modelling technology to monitor and calculate your air, water, and waste emissions.
ERA's team of scientists maintains a comprehensive Master Chemical List with thorough chemical records and every regulatory change from Environment Canada.
The methodology behind ERA’s software is built on total accuracy and rigorous data-gathering, basing reports on your facility’s actual, measured daily activities.
Compare all NPRI chemicals, their quantities, and chemical sources to their reporting limits.
Substances exempt from threshold calculations (e.g. articles not emitting NPRI substances during use) and activities and processes (e.g. research and testing) are automatically tagged.
Certain thresholds, such as the 10 full-time employee threshold, apply solely to certain activities. ERA's software pinpoints them for you.
The software generates a digital file that is ready to be uploaded to the ECCC's Single Window online system.
Every year, we bring our software up to date with the latest Environment Canada changes, implementing modifications to our reporting engine entirely free of charge — our software is never versioned!
Here's some of the developments we made this year to match changes to NPRI reporting requirements:
Added two new bases of estimate for substance quantities: remote quantification and speciation
Created a "Nature of releases" field for users needing to report non-point releases
Broke down individual stack releases into the five categories of combustion and fuel use
Separated the filterable fraction of particulate matter for reporting of PM2.5, PM10, or PM total
Updated the reporting criteria logic for Part 5 VOCs to flag speciated VOCs at or above 1 ton
The perfect resource to accompany reporters from start-to-finish. Our 30-page eBook covers every reporting criterion, threshold, and exemption in a straightforward checklist format.
A rundown of everything NPRI reporters should know, including reporting requirements, deadlines, and rules for each substance part, and the most reliable methods of estimate.
