STEERS-AEIR Reporting – Texas

 

What is AEIR Reporting?

Air Emissions Inventory (AEIR) is an online system within the State of Texas Environmental Electronic Reporting System (STEERS). AEIR is used to submit annual air surveys of sites meeting the regulatory criteria for reporting.

Sites subject to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Inventory Rule (see 30 TAC 101.10).  Typically, these are major facility/stationary sources emitting greater than the thresholds defined in the Section 101.10 regulation. There are also special cases when emissions inventory is required by the TCEQ.
