Q227. What is the difference between a Designated Representative (DR) and Alternate Designated Representative (ADR), and an Agent?

A227. A DR, ADR, or Agent can prepare a report for signature by another person. A DR or ADR can certify, sign and submit a report. An agent may submit a report on behalf of the DR or ADR. Before an Agent can submit an electronic submission, the Administrator must receive an electronic notice of delegation from the DR or the ADR specific for that Agent. The electronic notice of delegation must include the certification statement in 40 CFR 98.4(m)(v)(A), and as is indicated by the certification statement, an electronic submission by the Agent will be considered to be certified, signed, and submitted by the delegating DR or ADR.
