The Emission Inventory Tracking System (EMITS) is an online tool for reporting the emission statement. This will no longer require reporters to install software, and will allow users to submit the emission statement electronically.

EMITS FAQs

1. What is EMITS?

The Emission Inventory Tracking System (EMITS) is a tool made available to those companies that are required to report their air emissions under the Emission Statement Rule (326 IAC 2-6). The system was designed to take advantage of a centralized database that will no longer require reporters to install software on their computers and also allow for quick updates as required. EMITS can also act as a source to recover lost or previous reports as it will hold multiple years worth of data.

2. Who can access EMITS?

EMITS is limited to those that are required to report their emissions. IDEM makes summary data of the submission available to the public. More detailed data can be made available upon request.

If this doesn’t work, or if you are not granted the rights to do this you will need to contact your technical support

3. The reports won't run

"When clicking on 'Run Report' nothing happens." This is most likely caused by a Pop-up Blocker on your internet browser. In Internet Explorer you may see a bar appear across the top of the web page telling you that a pop-up has been blocked. In this case you may click on the bar and get a menu. On that menu are selections for allowing the pop-ups from this site.

For other situations you will have to either refer to the help options for your software or get help from your technical support.
