The Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Rule (40 CFR Part 98) requires reporting of greenhouse gas (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, if your facility emits 25,000 metric tons or more per year of GHGs, you may be required to submit annual reports to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
If you have determined your facility is required to report calendar year 2010 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the EPA, then you should make note of the following dates:
- August 1, 2011: Certificate of representation must submitted to the EPA for the facility’s designated representative (i.e., 60 days before the deadline for report submission)
- August 1, 2011: Reporters must be registered to use EPA’s electronic greenhouse gas reporting tool (e-GGRT)
- September 30, 2011: GHG reports must be entered on e-GRRT and submitted 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 x122 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
