1 Introduction
This document presents the user guide for the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT)
Mercury Electronic Reporting (MER) application submission process. This document is the user
guide for the Primary Agent/Consultant user of the MER application.
The MER application is the electronic, web-based tool provided by Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) for the submission of mercury data. As a Primary Agent/Consultant, you can
create or modify any MER form. You can also delete MER forms, create revised forms, and
download the Copy of Record (CoR). You may not submit original forms, but can submit
amendments.
For questions concerning the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) MER software
requirements, please contact the Central Data Exchange (CDX) Help Desk at
helpdesk@epacdx.net or call 1-888-890-1995 between the hours of 8 am - 6 pm Eastern
Standard Time (EST).
The TSCA mercury inventory rule ("Mercury; Reporting Requirements for Toxic Substances
Control Act Mercury Inventory") requires manufacturers (including importers) and processors to
report information to assist in the preparation of an inventory of mercury supply, use, and trade
in the United States, where mercury is defined as elemental mercury and a mercury compound.
The requirements apply to any person who manufactures (including imports) mercury or
mercury-added products, or otherwise intentionally uses mercury in a manufacturing process.
These persons must report to EPA the quantity of mercury they manufacture, use, import, store,
sell and/or export. In some cases, EPA also requires identification of the industrial sector, trading
country, type of product, and type of manufacturing process.
The Mercury Electronic Reporting (MER) application includes embedded help files and a
downloadable user manual to guide you through the MER submission process. Reporters may
submit information for elemental mercury, mercury compounds, or both in one report to the
Agency.
Paperwork Reduction Act Notice
This collection of information is approved by OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44
U.S.C. 3501 et seq. (OMB Control No. 2070-0207; EPA ICR No. 2567; Expiration Date:
10/31/2021). The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of
information is estimated to average 32 hours per response. Burden is defined in 5 CFR
1320.3(b). Responses to this collection of information are mandatory (40 CFR 713). An agency
may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to, respond to a collection of
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. You may send comments
regarding the EPA's need for this information, the accuracy of the provided burden estimates,
and any suggested methods for minimizing respondent burden, including through the use of
automated collection techniques to the Director, Collection Strategies Division, U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (2822T), 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, D.C.
20460. Please include the OMB Control No. in any correspondence. Send only comments to this
address. Mercury Inventory data must be submitted electronically through this e-reporting
application.

3 Primary Agent/Consultant Functions
This section describes how to:
•	Access the application
•	Navigate the MER 'Home' screen
•	Start and complete the MER form
•	Download a CoR
•	Populate an amendment
•	Upload a Confidential Business Information (CBI) substantiation attachment
The Primary Agent/Consultant is not responsible for the submission of original forms. The
Primary Agent/Consultant is an individual who serves as a consultant to a specific company.
However, this individual is not responsible for and does not have the authority to submit data
since the agent/consultant does not technically work for the submitting company.
As a Primary Agent/Consultant, you can create forms within the MER application. You may not
assign Support users to a form. A Primary Agent/Consultant can submit amendments, unlock
submissions, and delete forms. A Primary Agent/Consultant is an individual who has been hired
to serve as a consultant for the company of the sponsoring AO, can potentially start and/or
complete a MER form, and has the ability to submit amendments.
You can save the form at any point during the data entry process. The save functionality will
allow you to return to that same form at any point in the future. You can print the form at any
point; however, the 'Not For Submission' watermark will be placed on the form anytime the
form is printed prior to actual submission.
The Primary AO is responsible for the submission of original MER forms and is the sponsoring
individual for the Primary Agent/Consultant.
The Primary Support is designated by a P AO to provide supporting information on behalf of a
company; examples include a corporate on-site contact, a technical contact, a paid employee of
the company, an outside consultant for the company, or an authorized representative agent for
the company.

3.5 Create Passphrase
To start anew MER form click the 'Create New Form' button on the MER 'Home' screen to
navigate to the 'Create Passphrase' screen, which allows you to create a passphrase and associate
that passphrase with your newly created form.
The application uses the passphrase as an encryption key to protect the contents of the form. You
are responsible for remembering the passphrase and distributing it to the appropriate individuals.
If you lose or forget your passphrase, you will not be able to access a saved 'in progress' form,
or be able to view your MER Form to print, submit, or make changes. You will need to complete
a new MER Form and create a new passphrase for the form. For security reasons, the system
administrator will not have access to your passphrase and will not be able to retrieve or reset it.
•	New Pass phrase: Enter a passphrase that is between 8 to 20 characters. For maximum
security, your passphrase should contain a combination of letters and numbers. Your
passphrase should not contain special characters (for example, +, ?, and *). As a Primary
user, you are responsible for remembering your passphrase and distributing it to only
authorized individuals. The passphrase is used as an encryption key to protect the contents of
the form data.
•	Confirm Passphrase: Enter the same passphrase that was entered into the 'New Passphrase'
field. The same passphrase may be associated with multiple forms. The user can choose to
have the same passphrase for all forms. Supports do not have the ability to start a new form
or create a passphrase for a form.

4 Reporting via the MER Application
Anyone who manufactures (including imports) mercury or mercury-added products, or
intentionally uses mercury in a manufacturing process must report the amount of mercury used in
the specified activities during a given reporting year. These activities include manufacture,
import, distribution in commerce, storage, and export.
The definition of mercury includes elemental mercury and a mercury compound. Elemental
mercury is limited to CASRN and mercury compounds are inclusive of all substances where
elemental mercury or a mercury compound is reacted with another chemical substance.
The MER application collects information separately for Elemental Mercury and Mercury
Compounds with an option to report on both types of mercury in one submission.
For more information about the reporting requirements for the TSCA Mercury Inventory, please
see [in-progress webpage] or https://www.epa. gov/sites/production/files/2018-
06/documents/mercury reporting requirements for the tsca mercury inventory final rule.pdf.

desk. Upon navigating to the 'Identification of Reporting Activity' screen, the system auto-
generates a default alias comprised of a form type, date stamp, and time stamp in the following
format:  which can be edited as needed.
The application contains the following functionality and will generate additional screens:
The 'Elemental Mercury' section provides checkboxes to indicate that elemental mercury is
manufactured, imported, or otherwise intentionally used in a manufacturing process. The
'Mercury Compounds' section provides checkboxes to indicate that mercury compounds are
manufactured, imported, or otherwise intentionally used in a manufacturing process. The 'Both'
section allows a user to select checkboxes from both sections. If the 'Both' radio button is
selected, at least one statement from the 'Elemental Mercury' and 'Mercury Compounds' section
must be checked. Checking the individual checkboxes generates the corresponding reporting
activities within a form; at least one checkbox must be checked.

7 CBI Substantiation
EPA modified the electronic reporting applications for TSCA submissions to accept CBI
substantiations for CBI claims made during the creation of electronic submissions. Other than
information exempt from substantiation under TSCA Section 14(c)(2), users who wish to assert
CBI claims for data within a submission must substantiate those claims at the time of submission
as required by TSCA Section 14(c)(3).
7.1 Instructions for Substantiating Confidential Business Information (CBI) Claims
		Screen	
You can access the'Instructions for Substantiating CBI Claims' screen by claiming information
as CBI within a form and clicking the 'CBI Substantiation' link within the navigation header.
The'Instructions for Substantiating CBI Claims' screen will not generate until a CBI claim is
made within a submission. Information claimed CBI must either be substantiated or claimed
exempt pursuant to TSCA Section 14(c)(2) at the time of submission.
To substantiate a CBI claim, upload documentation asserting your claim(s). You may also opt-
out of substantiation if, for example, you believe your CBI claim is exempt under TSCA Section
14(c)(2). Common exemption reasons can be found at https://www.epa.gov/tsca-cbi/what-
information- inc lude - cb i- s ub stant i at ions. To opt-out of substantiation at the time of submission,
all CBI claims within a submission must be exempt.
•	Substantiation Opt-Out: Certain data claimed CBI may be exempt from substantiation at
the time of submission. If all information contained within the submission was previously
substantiated or you believe it to be exempt pursuant to TSCA Section 14(c) (2), check the
'Substantiation Opt-Out'checkbox to enable the'Substantiation Opt-Out Reasoning' text
box. If a substantiation document is uploaded, checking the 'Substantiation Opt-Out'
checkbox removes the uploaded attachments. Either a substantiation opt-out reason or CBI
substantiation document must be provided if a CBI claim is made in a submission.
•	Substantiation Opt-Out Reason: Enter information explaining why you believe your CBI
claim(s) to be exempt from substantiation. Either a substantiation opt-out reason within the
text box or CBI substantiation document must be provided if a CBI claim is made in a
submission.
•	Attach Document for CBI Substantiation: Click the 'Attach Document for CBI
Substantiation' link to search your local machine and upload a file that contains your CBI
substantiation. To overwrite an uploaded file, click the 'Edit' link to search for and upload a
new file. Delete uploaded files to enable the 'Substantiation Opt-Out' checkbox. Either a
substantiation opt-out reason or CBI substantiation document must be provided if a CBI
claim is made in a submission. Only a single attachment may be uploaded per field; a regular
attachment and if applicable, a CBI attachment. See Section 7.2 for additional information
regarding how to attach a document.
If you are unfamiliar with substantiating CBI claims or require assistance preparing
substantiation documents, EPA offers a link to templates and other information for substantiating
CBI claims on the 'Instructions for Substantiating CBI Claims' screen. It is suggested that you
right-click the link and open in a new tab or new window so you do not leave your submission as
this may affect your saved data. Contact the TSCA Hotline (202) 554-1404.

Instructions for Substantiating Confidential Business Information (CBI) Claims
The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act created a number of new requirements for those making confidential
business information (CBI) claims in TSCA submissions. Among these requirements is an obligation to substantiate most CBI claims at
the time of submission.
Information which may be claimed as CBI without substantiation is identified at TSCA 14(c)(2). This information includes:
A.	Specific information describing the processes used in manufacture or processing of a chemical substance, mixture, or article;
B.	Marketing and sales information;
C.	Information identifying a supplier or customer
D.	In the case of a mixture, details of the full composition of the mixture and the respective percentages of constituents;
E.	Specific information regarding the use, function, or application of a chemical substance or mixture in a process, mixture, or
article;
F Specific production or import volumes of the manufacturer or processor; an
G. Prior to the date on which a chemical substance is first offered for commercial distribution, the specific chemical identity of the
chemical substance, including the chemical name, molecular formula, Chemical Abstracts Service number, and other information
that would identify the specific chemical substance, if the specific chemical identity was claimed as confidential at the time it was
submitted in a notice under TSCA 5.
For other submissions where the submitter has claimed information as CBI, the submitter will be required to upload a document
substantiating those CBI claims at the time of submission. The substantiation document should provide EPA any information believed to
support the validity of the CBI claims. In order to assist submitters in substantiating their CBI claims, EPA has developed substantiation
templates that may be used as a starting point in preparing their CBI substantiations Submitters are encouraged to use these
substantiation template documents, but are not required to do so. The templates and other information relating to substantiating CBI
claims can be found at https://www.epa.gov/tsca-cbi/what-information-include-cbi-substantiations .
The Agency is required to review and make a determination on the validity of many CBI claims. Failure to substantiate a CBI claim or a
substantiation that does not adequately justify the claim may result in a denial of claims and subsequent public release of information. If
you have any questions concerning the options or the substantiation process, please contact:
•	Scott Sherlock, 202-564-8257, sherlock.scott@epa.gov
•	Jessica Barkas. 202-250-8880, barkas.jessica@epa.gov

previously substantiated, select the following "Substantiation Opt Out" checkbox and provide a detailed explanation why you believe

claims can be found at https://www.epa.gov/tsca-cbi/what-information-include-cbi-substantiations .
The Agency is required to review and make a determination on the validity of many CBI claims. Failure to substantiate a CBI claim or a
substantiation that does not adequately justify the claim may result in a denial of claims and subsequent public release of information. If
you have any questions concerning the options or the substantiation process, please contact:
•	Scott Sherlock, 202-564-8257, sherlock.scott@epa.gov
•	Jessica Barkas, 202-250-8880, barkas.jessica@epa.gov
If you believe all of the information you have claimed as CBI is exempt from substantiation under TSCA section 14(c)(2) or has been
previously substantiated, select the following "Substantiation Opt Out" checkbox and provide a detailed explanation why you believe
substantiation is not required.
