See below Describe the agency's data publication process
EPA has a number of policies and procedures concerning the publication of Agency data. The Enterprise Information Management Policy requires all EPA Organization officials, employees, and individuals or non-EPA organizations, if applicable, to ensure information is cataloged and or labeled with metadata. This includes geographic references, as appropriate, in EPA and Federal-wide registries, repositories or other information systems. The EPA GeoPlatform Publishing Workflow Standard Operating Procedure and the EPA Environmental Dataset Gateway (EDG) Governance Structure and Standard Operating Procedure outline the details of EPA data publishing. EPA provides a range of tools and registry content (e.g. Reusable Component Services, Environmental Dataset Gateway, and Data Element Registry) through its System of Registries located at: www.epa.gov/sor. EPA is continuing efforts to document APIs through the development of an Agency-wide API Strategy. The proposed strategy is based on 18F’s API standards. The proposal encourages the use of api.data.gov’s API management platform. In addition, APIs produced by the EPA should be described using one of the common API definition formats (such as Swagger, API Blueprint and RAML). The strategy is being finalized and an Agency-wide communication plan is being developed. This communication plan will include Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that require API developers to register dataset APIs in the EPA’s Environmental Dataset Gateway, which will allow these APIs to become part of the EPA's EDI/PDL. All other APIs will be registered in EPA's Reusable Components Services (RCS).
