Accessing EMTS

To support the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program, the EPA Moderated Transaction System (EMTS)
has been developed to screen the generation and transfer of RINs between renewable fuel producers,
importers, exporters, obligated parties, and non-obligated RIN owners.

You can access the EMTS website only through the Central Data Exchange (CDX). To do so, open your
internet browser, either Internet Explorer 7.0 and higher or Firefox 2.0 and higher (no other browsers are
currently supported), and enter the following URL:  https://cdx.epa.gov/SSL/CDX/login.asp.  Log in using
your MyCDX user name and password. From your account profile, click the "OTAQ EMTS Application" link
under Available Account Profiles (see Figure 1). If you do not see the "OTAQ EMTS Application" link, refer
to the "MyCDX Quick Start Guide" for further instructions.

Selecting an Organization

Upon accessing the EMTS Home page, you will need to select an organization to represent if you are
affiliated with two or more organizations.  To do so, click one of the organizations in the Select an
Organization popup. You must select an organization to represent before you can perform any actions on
the EMTS website.

To confirm that you are now representing the selected organization, verify that the statement in the upper
right corner of the page -- "Logged in as:"  --  contains your CDX user ID followed by the name of the
appropriate organization.  Note that you may change the organization you are representing by clicking on
the Organizations tab of the accordion on the right side of select pages (see Figure 4).

The Manage RIN Holdings page is organization-specific (indicated by the organization name above the RIN
Holdings grid). To switch the organization for which you are viewing RIN holdings, open the Organizations
tab of the accordion, and click "Select a Different Organization."

If you view the RIN Holdings page before any generate or buy transactions have been completed for your
organization, the RIN Holdings grid will be empty (see Figure 5).  At this point, you can generate or buy
RINs (the only valid transaction types when there are no RIN Holdings) either by clicking the Generate or
Buy button or by selecting Generate or Buy in the "I want to..." drop-down and clicking Go.

Once you have completed a generate transaction or successfully purchased RINs from a trading partner, the
RIN Holdings grid will now display your RINs (see Figure 6 for an example).  Each row in the RIN Holdings
grid represents a unique combination of Fuel (D  Code), RIN Year, and Assignment For each row, the sum
of RINs in  the Available, Pending, Reserved, and Locked columns should equal the number of RINs in the
Total column. The RINs in the Available column are RINs that are available for you to use in transactions.
The RINs in the Pending column are RINs that are involved in a pending sell transaction that you have
initiated (see  the Trading RINs  section).  The RINs in the Reserved column are RINs that are associated
with transactions in the Transaction Bin (see the Managing the Transaction Bin section). Finally, the RINs
in the Locked column are RINs  that have either  been locked by your organization or by the EPA. Please
note that the functionality for locking RINs is still being developed, so for the purpose of Beta testing, the
value in the Locked column of the RIN Holdings grid will always be "0."

The final column in the RIN Holdings grid is the "I want to..." column.  The drop-down for each row contains
the options View Details, Generate, Buy, Separate, Separate (Upward delegation), Sell, Retire (Obligation),
and Retire (Other). The options that are not applicable to the corresponding row of RINs will be grayed
out For example, Retire (Obligation) is only applicable for separated RINs being retired by Non-renewable
Fuel Importers, Renewable Fuel Exporters, and Refiners, so in all other instances, the option will be grayed
out If you select a transaction in the "I want to..." column for a row of RINs, the Fuel (D Code), RIN Year,
and Assignment fields in the resulting transaction wizard will be pre-populated with the  data from that
row.

The page contains the details of the RINs that you are about to lock along with a required Comment field.
After you enter a comment and press Confirm, you will return to the View RIN Holding Details page. For
the RIN batch that you locked, the Status field will display Locked, and the Locked By field will include the
name and organization of the individual that locked the RIN batch. Locked RINs will not be available for
any transactions.

The EPA has the capability to lock any organization's available or locked RIN batches.  If the EPA locks one
of your organization's RIN batches, the Status field for that row will display Locked, and the Locked By field
will display EPA.  RINs locked by the EPA cannot be used in transactions  and cannot be unlocked by your
organization.

If you wish to unlock a batch of RINs locked by your organization and not locked by the EPA, select Unlock
RINs in the "I want to..." drop-down. Like the Lock RINs Confirmation page, the Unlock RINs Confirmation
page requires a comment Once you confirm the unlock action, the RINs will have a status of Available, and
you will be able to use them to complete transactions.  Note that if the EPA locks a batch of RINs that your
organization had already locked, the EPA will need to  unlock  the RINs before you will have the ability to
unlock the RIN batch.

If you select View Details, you will be taken to a page that displays all of the details of the transaction. This
page can be used to verify the contents of the transaction before submitting it  If you select Remove, you
will also be taken to a page that contains the transaction details. At the bottom of the page, you will be able
to click a Confirm Remove button.  Doing so takes you back to the Transaction Bin, and  the removed
transaction is no longer available.

Along with accessing the Transaction Bin at the end of each wizard, you can navigate to the Transaction Bin
from multiple pages of the EMTS website using the Transaction Bin accordion tab on the right side of the
page (see Figure 15).   The tab contains the number  of un-submitted  transactions and a link to the
Transaction Bin.

                                View Transaction Bin
Clicking the View Transaction Bin link takes you to the Transaction Bin. Note that the RINs associated with
each separate, sell, and retire transaction in the Transaction Bin are Reserved rather than Available (they
show up in the Reserved column of the View RIN Holdings grid).  As a result, these RINs may not be used
for any other transactions.  If a separate, sell, or retire transaction is removed from the Transaction Bin, the
associated RINs return to an Available status.  RINs associated with a generate transaction do not show up
in the View RIN Holdings grid until the  transaction is submitted from  the Transaction Bin,  and  RINs
associated with a buy transaction do not show up in the View RIN Holdings grid until the transaction is
submitted from the Transaction Bin and accepted by the trading partner.

To complete a transaction, you must submit it from the Transaction Bin by clicking the Submit button at the
bottom of the page. If you have multiple transactions in the Transaction Bin, you must submit all of the
transactions at once. If you do not wish to submit one of the transactions in the bin, you can remove that
transaction and submit the remaining transactions. After you press Submit, you will be taken to a Confirm
and Submit page, which displays an overview of the transactions you are about to submit.  You must click
the Confirm Submit button circled in Figure 16 to complete the submission.

When you complete the Identify RINs page, click Advanced Options at the bottom of the page to navigate to
the second step of the separate wizard.  On the Advanced RIN Selection page, you have the option to specify
a batch of RINs to separate. If you do not wish to make any selections on this page, click Add to Transaction
Bin at the bottom of the page to continue. In this situation, EMTS will automatically separate the RINs in
your RIN Holding Account using the First-in,  First-out (FIFO) accounting method (i.e., the  oldest RINs,
based  on production  date, are used  first,  for  the  RIN Year, Fuel Code, and  Fuel Category chosen).
Alternatively, you may use this  page to identify a specific  originating  organization, or organization and
facility, or organization,  facility, and batch number.   To specify an organization,  click the originating
organization's name, and press Select (see Figure 20).

Retiring RINs

From your RIN  Holding Account, you can retire assigned or separated RINs.  If your organization  is an
obligated party (a  Non-renewable Fuel  Importer  or  a Refiner) or  a renewable fuel exporter,  your
organization may retire separated RINs for obligation (Retire (Obligation)) and assigned or separated RINs
for other reasons (Retire (Other)) (see Figure 24). For organizations with any other business activities (i.e.,
non-obligated parties), the only enabled retire option in your RIN Holdings grid will be Retire (Other) (see
Figure 25).

The green boxes on the right side of the page indicate which of the two steps of the retire wizard you are
completing.  All fields marked with a red asterisk are required.  In the retire wizard, the Fuel (D Code), RIN
Year, and Assignment fields are automatically populated with the information from the row of RINs in the
RIN Holdings grid that you decided to retire.  In the Reason  for Retire field, only the reasons that are
applicable to your organization's registered business activities are enabled (the remaining options are
grayed out). The retire wizard also contains a document grid you can use to specify the name and identifier
of one or more documents that support the retire transaction. Note that the document itself cannot be
uploaded.  To add document information to the grid, fill in the Document Type and Document Identification
fields, and click Add. Doing so will add a row to the documents grid (see the Separating RINs section for
more details).

When you complete the Identify RINs page, click Advanced RIN Selection at the bottom of the page to
navigate to the second page of the retire wizard.  On the Advanced RIN Selection page, you have the option
of specifying the batch of RINs that you wish to retire. If you do not wish to make any selections on this
page,  click Add to Transaction Bin at the  bottom of the page to continue. In this situation, EMTS will
automatically  retire the  RINs  in  your  RIN  Holding Account using the  FIFO accounting  method.
Alternatively, you may  use this  page to  identify a specific originating organization, or  organization and
facility, or organization, facility, and batch number. See the Separating RINs section for details on how to
use the Advanced RIN Selection page to specify originating source information. Once you have specified
the originating source information, click Add to Transaction Bin to continue. After you  submit the retire
transaction from the Transaction Bin, the RINs will be removed from your RIN Holdings.

Trading RINs

You can initiate a trade  from your RIN Holdings page.  To initiate a sell transaction, you must have RINs in
your RIN Holdings.  For a row of RIN data  in your RIN Holdings grid, select Sell in the "I want to..." drop-
down, and click Go.  Doing so will take you to the first page of the sell wizard (see Figure 28).

To add document information to the grid, fill in the Document Type and Document Identification fields, and
click Add (see the Separating RINs section for more details).

Once  you  click Confirm Accept,  the  transaction  will  no  longer  appear  in  your Pending  Received
Transactions (or your trading partner's Pending Initiated Transactions), and the results of the trade will be
reflected in your RIN Holdings.
As described earlier in this section, a trade can be completed if one trading partner initiates a trade through
a buy/sell wizard, and the other partner then accepts the initiated trade  from the Review Trades page.
Trades can also be completed in the following ways:

-------
                                                                             EMTS User's Guide

                                                                             Page 30
    •   Both trading partners submit XML files for a trade (one buy and one sell);
    •   One trading partner completes a buy/sell transaction on the web application, and the other trading
       partner submits a matching XML file for the corresponding transaction; or

    •   One trading partner completes a buy transaction on the web application, and the other trading
       partner completes a matching sell transaction on the web application.

In all of these instances, the following fields must match for the trades to match:

    •   RIN Year;
    •   Fuel Code;
    •   RIN Quantity;
    •   Reason Code (unless doing a deny);
    •   Trading Partner;
    •   Assignment Code;
    •   Price Element (either RIN price amount or gallon price amount); and
    •   Transaction Date.

If these fields do not match, then the trades submitted by both trading partners via XML or web application
will be considered pending initiated trades. For the Price Element matching criteria, both trading partners
must provide either RIN price amount or gallon price amount (the same element), but the values reported
do not need to match.  For more information on using XML files  to interact with EMTS, see the Submitting
XML Files Section.

Managing the Blocked List

In some cases, you may wish to ensure that your organization does not buy RINs that were generated by a
specific renewable fuel producer or at a specific facility. To do so, you can add a producer or facility to your
organization's Blocked List When a trade includes RINs that originated from  a producer or facility on the
buying organization's Blocked List, the transaction will automatically be denied by EMTS. You can access
your organization's Blocked List by  selecting View Blocked List under Organization in the EMTS main
menu.

When you add a producer to your organization's Blocked List, the Facility column in the View Blocked List
grid will contain the text "All facilities," indicating that your organization has chosen to block RINs that
originate at all of the producer's facilities.  If you add a facility to the Blocked List, the Facility column will
display the name of the facility that you have blocked, and the Organization column will display the name of
the organization associated with that facility.

For each row in the View Blocked List grid, you have the option to either View Details or Remove.  Selecting
View Details takes you to a View Blocked List Details page that includes the Organization, Facility, and Date
Blocked  information  displayed in  the grid  along with  the name  of  the person that added  the
organization/facility to the  Blocked List and the comment provided with the action.  Selecting Remove
takes you to a Confirm Removal page (see Figure 41). The page displays all of the information included on
the View Details page.  You must press  Confirm Remove at the  bottom of the page to remove the
organization/facility from the Blocked  List. Upon doing so, you will return to the View Blocked List grid,
and the removed organization/facility will no longer be included in the grid.

Submitting XML Files

If you wish to submit data to EMTS without using the website transaction wizards, you may do so by
submitting valid XML files from the EMTS web application, a personal node, or a node client.  For more
details on XML file submission, please go to http://www.exchangenetwork.net/exchanges/air/emts.htm and
download the implementation resources available on the site.  The Flow Configuration Document (FCD)
describes the different methods of file  submission and contains details on the Exchange Network Header
v2.0,  which must be  included in an XML file  for it to be valid.  The XML  Schema and Data Exchange
Template provide additional information on the structure and content requirements for a valid XML file.
Please see the Sample XML Instance File for an example of a valid XML file.

                                                                                March 2 010
                                                                                Page 37

To assist EMTS users with constructing XML files, EPA has developed the EMTS Conversion Tool (ECT).
The ECT has the capability to convert user-populated Excel or delimited files to XML files. The ECT also
provides blank templates  for each  transaction type for users to populate,  and then it  converts  the
populated templates to XML files. If you are interested in using the ECT to create XML files, please send a
request to emts-testing@pqa.com, and you will receive the instructions for installing and using the ECT.
The  ECT  and  related  materials  can  be  downloaded  from  the  EMTS  web  page  located  at
http://www.epa.gov/oms/renewablefuels/epamts.htm.

Once you have created an XML  file  that you would like to  submit to the EMTS node through the web
application (for node and node client submissions, see the FCD), return to the  EMTS website, hover over
Submissions on the  main menu, and click Submit File.  The Submit File page is user-specific, so if you
represent multiple organizations, you can submit files for all of your organizations from the Submit File
page without changing the organization that you represent. From this page, you may submit only one XML
file at a time. The file can contain multiple transactions, but the transactions may not be dependent upon
one another (i.e., you cannot submit a file that contains a generate transaction followed by a separate
transaction that separates the RINs generated in the file). On the Submit File page (see Figure 45), click the
Browse button to identify  the XML file you would like to submit.  The file must include the Exchange
Network Header v2.0 and must pass EMTS vl.O XSD schema validation for it to be submitted to the EMTS
node.

Once you have identified a file, press the Submit button. After clicking the Submit button, it may take some
time to process and load the file into EMTS, so please be patient, and avoid clicking the Submit button
again.  The file must first pass through the CDX node before it can be processed by the EMTS node.  If your
file does not pass schema validation, you will receive an error message on the Submit File page. If your file
is valid, the Submit File History page will be displayed (see Figure 46), which includes a grid with the CDX
node status details for your submission. To access this page without first submitting a file, hover over the
Submissions menu option, and click Submit File History.

The Submit File History page, like the Submit File page, is user-specific (not organization-specific), so it will
include CDX node status details for your submissions for all of your organizations.  A status of "Initiated,"
means that the transaction was sent from the EMTS website to the CDX node, and a status of "Processing"
means that the submission was accepted by the CDX node and has been sent to the EMTS node for
processing. To view the  EMTS node results for the file submission, hover over the Submissions menu
option, and click View Node Submissions.

The View Node Submissions page is organization-specific (and not user-specific), which means that the
page displays the status of all files submitted by representatives of the organization specified above the
View Node Submissions grid.   In Figure 47, you can see that two submitters, Nat Rogers and Ana Jemec,
have submitted files  for  RAP  Inc.  GEN  Cellulosic.   To  switch organizations,  click Select  a Different
Organization in the Organizations tab of the accordion (see Figure 47).

The Current Status column of the View Node Submissions grid displays the EMTS node status of each XML
file submission.  A  status of Processed indicates that the file passed all QA checks, and a status of Failed
indicates that the file failed one or more EMTS QA checks.  For processed and failed files, you can select
View Details in the "I want to..."  column to  see more information about the  submission  and a  list of
transactions within the submission (see  Figure 48). From the submission details page, you will be able to
view transaction details for each transaction in the submission.  From  the View Node Submissions page,
you can also select QA Results in the "I want to..." column for a failed submission.  This will take you to a QA
Feedback Report, which contains a list of QA checks that the submission failed.

Receiving Notifications

EMTS can communicate information to users by sending notifications via email.  Some notifications will be
sent immediately while others will be aggregated and sent nightly. The current phase of testing includes an
immediate notification for canceled trades and an aggregated daily notification for pending trades.

EMTS will send an immediate notification of canceled trades to all representatives of both trading partners
within fifteen minutes of a cancelation. The notification will include an overview of the canceled trade.

EMTS will also send a daily  notification of pending trades to an organization that has been listed as a
trading partner in an initiated trade and has not either accepted or denied the trade before the end of the
day (midnight EST). The notification will include an aggregate list of all pending trades received that day
along with the date and time that those trades will expire.

Future releases of EMTS will include more notifications, such as a daily notification including a list of all
XML files that have been submitted on behalf of an organization and an indication of whether or not those
files processed successfully.
EMTS Technical Support

If you  have any questions or want to report defects, comments, enhancements, or feedback, you may
