In ICIS, there are four compliance monitoring activities: inspections, investigations, information requests, and offsite record reviews. The definition of an information request is: an enforceable, written request for information about a site, facility, or activity. All four kinds of activities can and should be entered into ICIS in order to manage the program. At this time, only inspections and investigations are counted as part of the official mid-year and end-of-year certification process. Investigations are manually reported, except for CAA stationary sources which are obtained from AFS, and inspections are counted using several ICIS reports.
Inspections entered into ICIS can be retrieved from ICIS using the following reports:
FE&C: National Standard Reports - Compliance Inspections; and ICDS Total Inspections Subject to ICDS
ICIS-NPDES: FY 2006 EPA Certifcation Inspection Reports - see list in ICIS, several reports to choose from; FY 2007 EPA Certifcation Inspection Reports - see list in ICIS, several reports to choose from
