LAQM Portal

The LAQM Portal has been developed to incorporate the previous Report Submission Website (RSW) and the Diffusion Tube Data Entry System (DTDES).

Log onto the LAQM Portal

The LAQM Portal provides local authorities with a single access point to submit all relevant information regarding LAQM. This includes:

  • Submission of LAQM Reports - Local authorities are required to use the LAQM Portal for submission of their Annual Status Reports (ASRs), Annual Progress Reports (APRs), Progress Reports (PRs), Updating and Screening Assessments (USAs), Detailed Modelling Studies, Detailed Assessments, Further Assessments and Air Quality Action Plans (AQAPs).
  • Submission of NO2 Diffusion Tube Monitoring data (local authorities in England only, excluding London boroughs) - There is a new mandatory requirement to submit NO2 diffusion tube data to the LAQM Portal via the new Diffusion Tube Data Entry System (DTDES) upload facility. This submission should be completed once all monitoring data for the reporting year has been processed.
  • Administration of Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs) - Management of AQMAs, including new declarations, amendments and/or revocations to existing AQMAs, should be made via the AQMAs section of the LAQM Portal.
  • Maintenance of local authority contact details - To ensure Defra have up-to-date contact details for local authority officers responsible for Air Quality.
