The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has extended the deadline for 2010 greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting to September 30, 2011. The original deadline was March 31, 2011.
Entities who are required to submit data by the new deadline must register online to become a user of the EPA’s electronic greenhouse gas reporting tool (e-GGRT). Registration must be done no later than August 1, 2011. It is also noted that a certificate of representation must submitted to the EPA for the facility’s designated representative by the same date (i.e., 60 days before the deadline for report submission).
The Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Rule (40 CFR Part 98) requires reporting of GHG data and other relevant information from large emission sources across a range of industry sectors, and from suppliers of materials whose products emit GHGs if released or combusted. In general, facilities that emit 25,000 metric tons or more per year of GHGs may be required to submit annual reports to EPA.
If you have any questions about whether your facility is required to report or need assistance with compiling or reporting your data, please contact Lynn Sheridan at 508.970.0033 ext. 122 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
