Accessing EMTS

To support the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2J 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 1J. If you do not see the "OTAQ EMTS Application" link, refer
to "Getting Started - MyCDX" for further instructions.

Organizations menu options, and select View Organizations.  On the View Organizations page,  a grid
displays a list of the organizations you have been associated with in OTAQReg: Fuels Programs Registration
application.  For each organization,  you may  use the "I  want to..."  drop-down  menu to select an
organization or to view the registered data for that organization. If you choose the Select Organization
option, the organization  name  in the upper right corner of the  page should change to  reflect  the

organization. Choosing the View Registered Data option will take you to the View Registered Data page for

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 7]. 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 8 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 been locked either by your organization or by the EPA.

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.
Viewing RIN Batch Details and Locking RINs

To view all of the RIN batches that make up a row in the RIN Holdings grid, select View Details in the "I

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

fields blank.  To complete the generate wizard, click the Add to Transaction Bin button. Note: In addition,
parties must complete the  RFS0700: RFS2 Renewable Fuel Producer Co-products Report and submit it
quarterly.

If your organization is a Renewable Fuel Importer, you have the option to  generate RINs as an importer
from your RIN Holding Account. The Generate wizard for Importers is similar to the Generate wizard for
Renewable Fuel Producers,  except when you identify the production source on the Report Fuel page, you
must provide the originating organization and facility (the Importer's organization and facility] and the
generating organization and facility (the Foreign Producer's organization and facility].   The Foreign Fuel
Producer Facility ID that you enter must be registered for the Process, Fuel (D Code], Fuel Category, and
Feedstock that you enter, otherwise QA checks will prohibit RIN generation.

The Transaction Bin is organization-specific, so transactions added to the Transaction Bin by any of your
organization's submitters will be  displayed on the page.   To  switch the  organization for which  the
Transaction Bin is displayed, click Select a Different Organization (circled in Figure 15].

For  each transaction  in the Transaction Bin,  you  have the  option to View Details,  complete another
transaction of that transaction type (i.e., Generate RINs], or Remove the transaction (see Figure 16].

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 Generate RINs,
you will be taken to the first page of the Generate wizard so that you can complete an additional generate
transaction before you submit the transactions in the Transaction Bin. If you select Remove, you will 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  17].   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

completing. All fields marked with a red asterisk are required.  In the separate wizard, the Fuel (D Code]
and RIN Year fields are automatically populated with the information from the row of RINs in the RIN
Holdings grid that you decided to separate.  In the Reason for Separation drop-down, only the reasons that
are applicable to your organization's registered business activities are enabled (the remaining options are
grayed out].  The separate wizard also contains a document grid; you can use this grid to specify the name

ability to retire RINs for obligation is not available for Refiners. Selecting the Retire (Obligation] option as
a Refiner will take you to a page that is under construction (See Figure 28]. The ability to retire RINs for

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 30].

complete the buy transaction.  At this point, the transaction will be in a pending state, but the transfer of
RINs will not be reflected in your RIN Holdings grid until the trading partner accepts the buy transaction.

Once you  click  Confirm Accept,  the transaction will no longer appear  in your Pending  Received

If a trade is not accepted, cancelled, or denied within seven business days of the submission date (the date
that you or your trading partner initiated the trade], the trade will expire, and it will no longer appear on
your Review Trades page.

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 32
       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:

       1. RINYear;
       2. Fuel Code;
       3. RIN Quantity;
       4. Reason Code;*
       5. Assignment Code;
       6. Transaction Date; and
       7. RIN Price Amount or Gallon Price Amount Element.**

       * If the buy or sell reason is Deny Trade or Cancel Trade, then the Reason Codes do not need to
         match.

       ** The values reported for these elements are not required to match.

In addition:

       1]  The Trading Partner Organization Identifiers must agree (e.g., the sell transaction should list
          the buying organization as the Trading Partner, and the buy transaction should list the selling
          organization as the Trading Partner]; and

       2]  If one Trading Partner specifies Originating Source information, then the other Trading Partner
          must specify the same Originating Source information.

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

button  to add a producer or facility to your organization's Blocked List.  Clicking Add Blocked Producer
takes you to the Add Producer to Blocked List page (see Figure 41]. On the Add Producer to Blocked List

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 43].  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 (FCDJ
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.

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. 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 47], 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.

The Submit File History page (see Figure 49], like the Submit File page, is user-specific (not organization-
specific], so it will include records for your submissions  for all  of your organizations.  It will display
information only for files submitted from the Submit File page and not for files submitted using a personal
node or node  client.  If the Received By CDX column displays Yes for a submission, the submission was
successfully received 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 displays the results of XML files submitted from a personal
node or node client along with files submitted from the Submit File page, which acts as a node client.

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 50, you can see that two submitters, Nat Rogers and Ana Jemec,
have submitted files  for  RAP Inc. GEN  Biodiesel.   To switch organizations, click Select a Different
Organization in the Organizations tab of the accordion.

The Submission 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 51]. 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.

    How do I create a Transaction Error Report?

The RFS2 EMTS Transaction Error Report is used to report discrepancies that exist between the EMTS and
your organization's internal record-keeping system. You can report transaction errors following the end of
the quarter. You must report all transaction errors within ten business days of the due date for quarterly
reports. Note that the quarterly report submission deadline is two months after the quarter ends. When
you have entered and submitted your transaction errors, EMTS will create a Transaction Error Report for
your organization. If you do not enter any errors or if you do not submit the reported errors, EMTS will not
generate a Transaction Error Report for your organization. Once a Transaction Error Report is generated
for your organization, it cannot be changed in any way.

You must login to the EMTS web application to report transaction errors.  In the EMTS main menu, select
Reports, and  then select Transaction Errors.  If the compliance period is closed or you have previously
submitted a Transaction Error Report for the quarter, you will see  a message indicating that transaction
error reporting is not available.  If the Compliance period is open and you have not yet submitted a
Transaction Error Report for the quarter, press Continue.

On the View Reported Errors page, you can add transaction errors to the Reported Errors grid (see Figure
59]. If you have already entered errors for the quarter, but have not yet submitted them, you can view and
edit the errors on this page.

Once you confirm the transaction errors, EMTS will generate your organization's Transaction Error Report,
and you will no longer be able to add or edit transaction errors for the compliance period.  EMTS will
generate the report within one business day of your confirmation.  At that time, the Transaction Error
Report will be available for you to download from the View Reports page (select View Reports under the
Reports menu option].  To download the Transaction Error Report, select Download Document in the "I
want to..." drop-down menu. Note that if the "I want to..." column for the report says "No valid actions," the
report is not yet available to be downloaded. When you select Download Document and press Go, you will
see a window asking you to either open or save the ZIP file (see Figure 63]. After you open the ZIP file, you
will be able to access the PDF report.

    How do I manage my quarterly report subscriptions?

By default, all users are subscribed to each of the quarterly reports. Subscriptions are organization specific,
so all submitters for an organization can download the reports.  You can verify your subscriptions to the
quarterly reports on the Manage Subscriptions page by selecting Manage Subscriptions under Reports on
the EMTS main menu.
To change the subscription for a quarterly report, click the Go button in the "I want to..." column for the
report.  On the Manage Subscription page for that report, check or uncheck the "Subscribed" box (see
Figure 64].

    Which transactions are included in the quarterly reports?

The reports include transactions that were submitted and completed during the quarter. Thus, generate,
buy, and sell transactions with a generation date or transaction date in one quarter and a submission date
in another quarter will be included in the quarterly reports from the quarter that contains the submission
date. Retire and separate transactions are always included in the report from the quarter during which they were submitted.

    How do I submit quarterly reports?

You must submit your reports through the D C Fuels application, which is accessed through MyCDX. For
more information, visit http://www. epa.gov/otaq/regs/fuels/rfsforms. htm. Quarterly reports are required
to be submitted within two months of the end of the quarter.

    Are examples of the quarterly reports available?
For examples of the quarterly reports, please see the document "EMTS Quarterly Reports - Getting Started."
