FRS Download Summary and Data Element Dictionary

The Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) system incorporates data from the Facility Registry Service (FRS) to link records representing data about the same facility across different programmatic database systems. On this page:


FRS Description

EPA's Facility Registry Service (FRS) is a centrally managed database that identifies facilities, sites, or places (program interest) subject to environmental regulations or of environmental interest. It assigns a unique identifier to each program interest, and provides a cross-reference (linkage) to data records about that interest which reside in many of EPA’s programmatic data management systems.

Using the FRS program interest linkage, records included in the FRS download file are those with a valid FRS and which are cross-referenced by ID number to data contained in ICIS-Air, TRI, GHG (E-GGRT), RCRAInfo, SDWIS, ICIS-NPDES, RMP, CEDRI, CAMD, EIS, TSCA, or Superfund Enterprise Management System (SEMS).

  • Program Links contains the linkages between program record (identified by Program Acronym and Program System Identifier) to the FRS Facility (identified by the Registry ID).
  • NAICS and SIC contain the industrial classification codes for each facility in FRS.
