we keep getting an email that our NetDMR and CDX accounts don't match, but we don't have a CDX account that we are aware of. How do we find our CDX account? You can go to and click on the "Forgot Your User ID?" link. This will ask for the email address, then you will receive an email containing the user ID(s) registered to that email in the CDX system.
What constitutes an account discrepancy?  Expired password?? If you have an existing CDX account this means there is a different between first name, last name, username and/or email address. All these items must match exactly. The passwords to not need to match between accounts.
What does 'Permitte user' mean in the new CDX role? Eddie is explaining now.
What if your email address in CDX is different than the NetDMR email address? Which email address will be used to send the CR Key email? You will need to ensure that they match before May 12, You should have received an email from, please contact them to ensure this is the case
How do I update email address in CDX? You must call the CDX Help Desk at 1-888-890-1995 and their staff can change the email on your account. 
What role would you be if you have both a signatory role as well as edit, view and add data? you'd be a Permittee (Signature)
when you click on the NetDMR link will it go to the old page we currently see where you pick the state, etc? On May 22, when you click on the, you will not see the current screen. It will instead have a streamlined registration to log into CDX only for NetDMR users. If you are an existing NetDMR user, you must click on the CRK email on May 22 to complete the move first (do not try to log into the streamlined user registration at Move must happen first. And for future reference, you can use to login to CDX to access NetDMR and submit DMRs
: when you click on the NetDMR link will it go to the old page we currently see where you pick the state, etc? Please see my response above
will the questions be included on the website? yes
Who approves requests for access within an organization (like the old Permit Administrator role)? Still permit administrator.  This role has not changed.
I thought the only roles are Permittee (signature) and Permittee (no signature). Is there also a Permit Administrator role? If so, once the migration is complete, do I go into CDX and change my role from Permittee (no signature) to Permit Administrator? Permittee is a user type, Permit Admi (PA) is a role.  As a permittee (no sig) , you need to request an access for PA. if you are permittee (with sig), PA role will comes with it.
So if I have a NetDMRTest account, and a CDX test account, the test account won't be migrated (since I'm not an internal user) even if my username and email match. But I could create a new NetDMRTest account within CDX Test after the 5/30 migration. Is that right?  Correct.
So when a vast number of migrations fail and systems can't submit a DMR on time, what are the ramifications? We have been doing a major outreach to resolve discrepancies since February. We reached a desired high % of users who will receive CRK emails to complete migration.  If all fails, users will have to create a new account, request access for permits and submit for due DMRs, we are working to see for users who can't meet due date DMR due to migration can be considered for late submission.
Will I still be able to submit all dmr submissions the same way Yes. CDX is only the sign in part. Submitting DMRs is still business as usual using the same screens.
5/4/17 After migration, can we add new "Permittee Signature" roles? yes, you can
All of this will need to be done after May 22 correct? You will receive CRK email on May 22. Yes you have to go through the process after you receive the email. 
As a permit admin in NetDMR we had the ability to approve new roles for individuals requesting access to NetDMR.  Will we also have a similar approval role in CDX? Yes
Can I import my April NetDMR data and sign and submit my net dmrs after May 22nd in the normal Netdmr system for the whole month of May or does it have to be in CDX after May 22nd. CDX is just the login part and will deal with requesting access etc moving forward. NetDMR tool still stays the same for sumbitting DMRs. You can submit before May 19. Or wait for the CRK email, complete the move and sign and submit after May 22. ,After 22nd, you need to logon to CDX , import and sign & submit.  Recommend to do it before 5/18.  5/19 the system is down.
Can the 5 signatory questions contain the 3 original security questions from NetDMR, or must they be different? The questions are chosen from a pick list. There may be questions that appear on both, and if so, you may choose it. But you must choose from the available questions
Do I have to make sure my CDX password and NetDMR password are the same before the rollout? No, but please remeber both.  That is important.
Do your emails for cdx and netdmr have to match in order to be integrated even if the user id already matches? Yes the following must match for a successful move from NetDMR to CDX: First name, Last Name, Username, Email
Does the LexisNexis agreement apply to all users or only signatories?  Does a separate agreement have to be submitted for each login? Only signatories. If you have one CDX account, then just one time.,Permittee (no signature) & Data Provider do not have to go through LexisNexis
For existing NetDMR users, do we need to complete and/or sign any new subscriber agreements or authorization documents? If you are an existing NetDMR, and resolved all your profile discrepancies, then all this will carry over during the 'move'.  For signatories, during the CRK process, user just have to click on ESA.  THis is not like the signing process, it's just a click button to continue.,Current netdmr signatories (already been approved), they don't need to go through Lexis Nexis.  During migration, Signatory just need to click on Agree, then the CDX creates a new Electronic Signature Agreement(ESA). Identifiy proofing  applies only to a new permittee (with Signature).
For existing NetDMR users, will previously completed/submitted DMRs still be available/accessible in CDX?  That is, will these submittals migrate over from NetDMR to CDX? If you receive CRK email, that means you will be able to successfully move your account from NetDMR to CDX. Please remember your password, that's critical. If you can do that, you can access everything in NEtDMR via CDX
How are new CDX accounts linked to NetDMR in CDX, after the migration (if no current NetDMR or CDX account exists)? Only current existing NetDMR users will move to CDX and be 'linked'. New users after may 22 will have to create an account in CDX.,A new user creates a new account in CDX and add the program service (NetDMR Instance0, then request access role in the NetDMR.
How long does the signing process take? Just a few seconds (if you know your password and security question)
I have a current CDX account. Will registration be necessary in this case? You should have received an email from letting you know whether or not you have any discrepancies between your NetDMR profile info and CDX profile info. If you have resolved any discrepancies or don't have any discrepancies, please wait for your CRK email on May 22 and follow the process by clicking the link.  This will complete you r NetDMR account migration to CDX. ,Is your CDX user id, name  & email address the same as NetDMR userid, name & email address?  If yes, you don't need to do anything.  If your CDX user id is diffierent, you need to go to NetDMR and update your user id.  
I have two different User Id. Do they have to match in NetDMR and CDX? Two user ID in CDX means two CDX account. You have to decide which CDX account you want your NetDMR account to move to.  Email to let them know which account you prefer.
My user Id are not the same in NetDMR and CDX? Do they need to match? Yes. You should've received an email from stating that you have discrepancies. PLEASE respond to them in order for you to move successfully. 
I missed what DRK stads for CRK: Customer Retrieval Key
If I need to add an additional signature person after May 22, do they have to create a NetDMR account? Yes, they need to create a new account, pass Identity Proofing and then request a Signatory access for this permit.,All new account creation will be done in the CDX, then user landed to the NetDMR production.  Signatory has to pass CDX's Identity Proofing.
Can I have two Permittee (Signature) persons in CDX? yes, you can
Few people will know when their SSN was issued. Out of Wallet questions are multiple choice questions and there are many questions. The user has to answer 3 out of 4 questions to move forward.  If you remember your password (& security questions), you don't even have to face this. 
In the past when NOI signatoriies had to do a new Subsriber Agreenent there was an issue when they logged on to do so. It would not allow them to advance through the process -said account already esists for this email address.  For NetDMR CDX user migration, you CDX account info should be the same as NetDMR.  To create a new account, your email address and user id should be unique.  You can't use the same email address.
So preparers that are consulting firms/labs will have to request access again to each organization(client) that they prepare DMRs for? I work for 30+ different organizations, so I have to do these all individually like we did before?  Move is only per program service (i.e. Kentucky, Colorado) not per permit. If you have two NetDMR accounts in two different program services (i.e. instances), then you will receive two CRK email.  It doesn't matter how many permit access you have in those program services.
I asked the question wrong.  i am a consultant/contractor. I have 30+ clients that are different organizations - offshore oil and gas operators. For Example i am the preparer for Shell, Chevron, Exxon Your Organization is the the company you work for, NOT the 30 companies you prepare DMRs for. 
If it is a new signatory authority does a hard copy approval document need to be submitted.  If electronic is acceptable, can anyone sign up to be the signatory authority within one's organization I'm not sure I understand the question. Both Paper and Electronic option are available in CDX for new users.  ,Don't quite understand the question.  Signatory has a choice of submitting a copy or electronic copy of subscriber agreement.  You have a choice.
If my cognizant official/signatory authority already has a CDX account log in and password can he/she just select NetDMR as a module (similar to Risk Managment Program or Toxic Release Inventory TRIME web modules) or do I have to have that individual creat a NetDMR account for the migration? Yes. User who do not migrate AND have a CDX account already will only need to Add Program Service without having to go through a whole Create Account process. Further instructions can be found on NetDMR Zendesk,You have to wait for your CRK email on May 22 to move your existing NetDMR to CDX so that you don't have to go through access request to permits etc.  But please make sure your NetDMR user profile matches your CDX profile in order to receive the CRK email. Contact to make sure you do not have discrepancies between netdmr and cdx
If your current role is a Data Provider, but you do work for the facility, do you have to change your role to Permittee? You do not have to change any role in NetDMR now for the move,You don't need to change your role, if you are a data provider and only responsible for DMR data entries. 
Is the account "my" account and I need to have my back-up create his own? Do no understand your question. Please clarify.
Only enter the password for CDX not NetDMR correct? The screens will be clear on which password to enter.  If you have only a netdmr account, then the screen will say enter 'NetDMR password'. If you have netdmr and CDX account, you will have to go through dual login, for which you need to enter both netdmr and cdx.  ,Screen is very specific.  It will display NetDMR user id, NetDMR password.  If you have a CDX account, the scecond screen ask you to enter CDX password.
So if I understand correctly, we should still be submitting our DMRs as usual through May 12?   Correct. ,During May 12-19, the user will not be able to change User profile information like First Name, Last Name, Email , Username etc. 
I tried to logon to my NetDMR several times recently and the system wouldn't let me in.  Who do I contact about this problem with my account? Yes  - the following must match for a successful move from NetDMR to CDX: First Name, Last Name, Username, Email,Your State/Region.  The contact info listed at :,please send an email to to let us know. Also you can contact your regulatory authority:
What if I had a Previous CDX account and a NETdmr account which do not match before this change came about. Do I need to wait to create anything new at CDX until prompted by the email link to ensure my NETdmr information is migrated over? You should've received an email from stating exactly what the discrepancies are. PLEASE respond to them or call them and they will assist you to resolve all issues for a successful move.
What if you have a NetDMR account but no CDX account.  Should you set up the CDX account now or just wait until the migration is done? No. You will have to wait until you get the CRK email on May 22. All you have to do is follow the link and it will move your netdmr account to CDX. 
If I need to add a Data Entry person to NetDMR should I do that now or wait until after the migration? if you can afford to wait, we will recommend that you wait.
What password parameters are there for CDX? · At least 8 Characters

· Not all numeric characters

· Only acceptable special characters are period, hyphen, underscore, and the (at) symbol

Spaces are not allowed
Why is this being done toward the end of the month and not at the beginning of the month so as to not interfere with DMR submissions? We understand the worry. This date was based on various IT and business considerations
Will you have a NetDMR password and a CDX password? No. After migration, you will only have a CDX password
will all states be required to use CDX/NetDMR? Yes.,Every existing NetDMR user has to use CDX login after May 22 (i.e. submitting DMRs in NetDMR is business as usual), it's just the log in process that'll change after May 22, once users complete CRK process. 
Will I be able to sign more than 1 DMR at a time or do I have to go thru the whold process for each DMR?  An example would be upstream, downstream, and Effluent of a CSO site. You can sign multiple DMRs just like now,The move will happen only once on May 22 so that your NetDMR account moves to CDX. That's it! After that, you just log in and submit DMRs the way you normally do.
