EPA has published a final rule revising its Final Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Rule (GHGR) to require reporters subject to the rule to provide (i) the name, address and percentage ownership of their U.S. parent company(s); (ii) their primary North American Industry Classification Systems (NAICS) code(s), as well as all additional applicable NAICS code(s); and (iii) an indication of whether any of their reported emissions are from a cogeneration unit.
The GHGR, which became effective December 29, 2009, requires the reporting of GHG emissions and other relevant information from certain source categories in the United States. The GHGR includes reporting requirements for facilities that emit GHGs and for suppliers of fuels and industrial gases. Facilities and suppliers must meet the applicability criteria in 40 C.F.R. part 98, subpart A or must submit annual GHG reports in accordance with the provisions in 40 C.F.R. 98.3(c). This rule amends 40 C.F.R. part 98 to include the additional information outlined above. The rule is effective November 22, 2010.
