Register for CMDP Test/Pre-Production Environment
The Pre-Production environment serves as a testing environment, allowing users to familiarize themselves with CMDP. Users must register for access to CMDP Pre-Production and complete the recommended testing prior to receiving approval to report compliance data through CMDP Production.
To begin the registration process, users must request access through EPA's Shared
CROMERR Services (SCS). This guide
to the registration process is available from OHA and provides a detailed, step-by-step registration sequence for laboratory administrators.
All laboratory administrators must be approved by OHA to access CMDP. These administrators will then be able to sponsor additional CMDP users for their organizations.
Please note: After moving to CMDP Production, laboratory administrators and users can return to Pre-Production at any time, for training or other purposes.
Learn to Use CMDP
After registering for CMDP Pre-Production, users should review the available training materials before beginning to test in CMDP. EPA has developed extensive training materials, along with video tutorials. These documents and videos can be found on the
CMDP Help Center
While there are several CMDP reporting options, an XML file output from a user’s LIMS and uploaded into CMDP is encouraged. XML files created using Excel templates uploaded to CMDP or online data entry forms are additional options for CMDP reporting. Training for CMDP Templates (MS Excel files) used to generate an XML file can be found at CMDP Help Center For Labs and Public Water Systems (PWS)
. Current CMDP templates used for reporting to OHA can be downloaded from
Pre-Production testing will consist of three successfully submitted jobs for each sample type a laboratory intends to report. After jobs have been successfully submitted and verified, a link for CMDP Production registration will be provided.
