On January 6, 2009, the WCI released its “Background Document and Progress Report for Essential Requirements of Mandatory Reporting for the Western Climate Initiative, Third Draft.” This draft report describes the current state of the WCI’s proposed GHG reporting requirements, which all regulated emitters will be required to comply with when reporting their GHG emissions to a jurisdiction that is a WCI partner. The report already includes proposed reporting requirements for many emissions-intensive sectors, and it is expected to be further modified in 2009 to include such requirements for electricity importers, fuel distributors, natural gas transmitters and distributors, and oil and gas producers.
