 The Web Electronic Data Review (WebEDR) is a Web-based system that performs automated data processing on laboratory-submitted Electronic
 Data Deliverables  (EDDs). This system enables users to perform technical audits on data, as well as measure and analyze Environmental
 Response Laboratory Network (ERLN) and other data deliverables against Measurement Quality Objectives (MQOs). This laboratory guide covers
 the file upload, Self Inspection, and Final Submission processes. For further details on how to use this application, refer to the WebEDR Online
 Help, User Manual, or the training videos.

File Upload Wizard
The file upload  process  in WebEDR enables Laboratory Users  to
upload their EDDs and perform preliminary checks on the data (Self
Inspection). Once the data has been corrected, Laboratory Users can
submit the data to EPA for review  (Final Submission).

Perform Self Inspection
1)   On the Laboratory Workspace, select the Upload New File
2)   Select the file and its submission type. Click Next.
3)   Complete the project information page.  Click Next.
4)   Complete  the  method mapping information  by selecting  a
    WebEDR method and matrix. Click Next.
5)   Select Self Inspection as the Submission Type. Click Finish.
6)   Review the Self Inspection Summary page.
7)   To review the laboratory data uploaded to WebEDR, click Review
    Lab Data.
    a)  Each sample and substance from the uploaded files  is
       displayed on this screen.  If any errors are found, edit the EDO,
       and re-load it to WebEDR.
8)   Return to the Self Inspection  Summary  page.
