XML Reporting Documentation
Below you will find three type of technical assistance for the Subpart W XML reporting community: schema and XML requirements documentation, documentation addressing critical validation check, and XML reporting examples for each Subpart W Segment. These schema will go into effect in mid-February 2018; until then Version 7.1 of the schema remains applicable. While these will address a wide range of questions, users that continue to have difficulty configuring, uploading, or submitting their Subpart W XML are urged to contact the GHGRP Help desk by e-mail at GHGReporting@epa.gov.

Each example is presented in a Reporting Form format and in an XML for consistent with the formats created by and expected by e-GGRT.
