HISTORY

OTAQ is responsible for developing and maintaining systems and processes associated with
the registration and reporting of fuels and fuel additives as well as compliance reporting for a
variety of fuels programs. Over the years, OTAQ has offered a handful of electronic reporting
solutions to the regulated community. In 1995, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) was
implemented as an Agency pilot program for reporting Confidential Business Information (CBI)
data. EDI demonstrated the benefits and efficiencies of electronic reporting, but the system
proved to be cumbersome for many users.  In 2001 OTAQ introduced a simplified reporting
method for the Tier 2 Gasoline  Sulfur program. This method employs a flat file or spreadsheet
based report structure which may be submitted on a diskette or CD; however, it stops short of
an all-electronic reporting method since certification of the data must be done with  hardcopy
letters signed by a corporate official. In 2006, OTAQ introduced a fully electronic reporting
method utilizing the successful  flat file data structure and submitted via EPA's CDX.
OVERVIEW
The OTAQ/CDX Web portal is a simple and secure all-electronic reporting method for fuels
compliance report data. Users access the OTAQ data flow via Web forms accessed by logging
into CDX using a Microsoft (MS) Internet Explorer (IE) browser (Version 5.5 or higher). The
portal includes built-in encryption capabilities to protect user files and employs digital certificates
for certification and authentication of submissions.

USER REGISTRATION FOR CDX
       Discussion
Information regarding each user of the system needs to be provided to EPA as part of the user
registration process. This step is known as user pre-registration. Please visit the following page
to pre-register users for CDX: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/fuels/fuelsregistration.htm

In order to use the Fuels Reporting System, two registration steps must take place. First, a
customer must register their company with EPA. This identifies the company to EPA, and
provides EPA with detailed contact information. Once EPA accepts a company's registration, a
four digit code is issued to the company, known as a company/ entity ID . This code is unique to
each company and is necessary to associate any and all data submissions to EPA belonging to
that specific company.
After a company has obtained a four-digit Company/ Entity Identification number from EPA, the
company must register the employees from their company that will be authorized to submit data
on the company's behalf. This is known as user registration, and the participants are designated
as users of the system. At that point, the user will  need to continue through various screens to
create a username and password, which will be used for all subsequent access to the system.
Most of the pages presented to the user will be pre-populated with information taken from the
spreadsheet that was submitted by the company to EPA, as part of the pre-registration process.
The following section details the process the user will need to complete in order to obtain an
account on the system, using their CRK.
   ^Step-by-Step
Steps
1. The user has called the CDX Help Desk at 888.890.1995
and has been given a Web address and a CRK code
2. Enter CRK code
3. Finish
4. Carefully read the warning notice and the privacy
statement, once complete
5. Carefully read the CDX Terms & Conditions and print a
copy for your records

A unique user name is required within CDX. If the user name supplied is already in use, you will
be prompted to select another user name.
       The user name and password must be at least eight characters long.
       Additionally, the password must include at least one number. Both user
       name and password are restricted to alphanumeric characters, and may
       not begin with a number or contain spaces or symbols, (e.g., $, #, ", or @).
       The user name and password should not be the same.
       Note: You will need your user name and password each time you logon to
       CDX. Remember your user name and password.  If you forget your user
       name and password, CDX Technical Support will supply the secret
       question, and you must provide the secret answer to reset your password.
In addition to the user name and password, you must provide a secret question and secret
answer. For example, you might supply the question "Dog's Name", and enter "Ruby" as the
answer.

      You are now finished with the online portion of CDX registration.  Read the screen and
      click on the "Finished" button. The OTAQ Program requires approval for use of the
      dataflow, so your access to OTAQ: DC Fuel will be on hold until approved by OTAQ.
      Your OTAQ account will be activated upon your approval.

      A digital signature agreement will be automatically generated. The OTAQ program uses
      an IdenTrust digital certificate. Click the Accept & Print button to print your digital
      signature agreement. This document is needed for EPA to approve your digital
      certificate and verify that you understand the responsibilities of your digital signature.
      After you have printed, read and signed the agreement, fax it as soon as possible to
      the CDX Help Desk at 301.429.3905.
                Note: As soon as possible, fax the signed agreement
                to the CDX Help Desk: Fax number is 301.429.3905
                and mail it to the address on the form
      After you have accepted and printed the digital signature agreement, you will be taken to
      the digital certificate voucher page. Click the "print and continue" button to print this
      page as well as to navigate to your CDX homepage. You will need to keep the voucher
      number that appears on your screen for later use to verify your sponsorship by the EPA
      and obtain your digital certificate.

EXPORTING YOUR DIGITAL CERTIFICATE
    Discussion
You must export your certificate into a file on your PC and also store a copy of it in a safe place (on a
CD; backed up on a network server; consult your PC support staff if needed). This will provide 2
benefits: first, it will allow you to re-install the certificate onto your PC in case of a malfunction, and
second, it will allow you to move your signing authority onto a new PC  if needed.

The certificate export procedure is a mechanism to copy a user's certificate (from their browser's
proprietary certificate store) into a standard certificate file (NIST approved PKCS#12 format) on their
PC file system.
^Step-by-Step

            This password does not have to be the same as the
            password for your certificate, CDX account, nor your
