Q395. Can I enter test data using the web forms, generate a report as XML and use that as a guideline for creating XML files?

A395. Yes, the XML file generated by e-GGRT is compliant with the current Greenhouse Gas (GHG) XML schema and can be used to generate XML model reports.  Since old XML schema used in prior years may not be compatible with the XML schema for the current year, we recommend that you consult the XML schema instructions each year to ensure the XML schema you are using is valid for the current reporting year.  Although you may use the web forms to generate an XML model report using test data, we ask that you do not submit reports that contain test data as once submitted the report becomes part of the facility's reporting history.
