Case Conclusion Data Sheet (CCDS) definition


The case conclusion data sheet (CCDS) is a tool used to capture relevant information on results and environmental benefits of concluded enforcement cases including pollutant reduction benefits.  EPA implemented the CCDS in FY 1996.  CCDS information must be provided whenever any formal enforcement case is concluded.  For civil judicial cases, the information is reported when a consent decree, court order, or judgment is entered (not lodged).  For administrative cases, information is reported when an administrative order or final agreement is signed (usually by the Regional Administrator) and issued.  To ensure good data quality, some Regions will not sign off on an Administrative Consent Agreement unless the CCDS is attached and has been reviewed.
