ETRS – Description

The ETRS is the online system in which EAS Participants must file identifying information, day-of-test data, and post-test data related to a nationwide test.  ETRS provides several new features that ease the data-entry burden on EAS Participants, encourage timely filings, and minimize input errors.

  • Q: How do I update outdated or inaccurate information that auto-populates to my Form One?

    A: If you find that you cannot edit outdated or inaccurate data on Form One, you need to change the data at the source, which is the Commission’s Online Public Inspection File (OPIF). Once that information is corrected in OPIF, it will be updated in ETRS within 24 hours. This is the OPIF sign in page. Here is additional information for OPIF filers

EAS Operating Handbook

EAS Operating Handbook

The EAS Operating Handbook summarizes the actions to be taken by personnel at EAS Participant facilities upon receipt of an EAN, tests, or State and Local Area alerts. A copy of the Handbook must be located at normal duty positions or EAS equipment locations when an operator is required to be on duty and be immediately available to staff responsible for authenticating messages and initiating actions.
