As of January 1, 2010, all facilities in British Columbia that emit over 10,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases ("GHGs") annually are required to report their emissions. Those reporting operations with emissions of 25,000 tonnes or greater are required to have emissions reports verified by an independent third party.

It is expected that approximately 200 facilities will be required to report annually under the Reporting Regulation to the Greenhouse Gas Reduction (Cap and Trade) Act.

More information, as well as a Methodology Manual, Verification Manual and an Emissions Estimator are available on the B.C. Ministry of Environment Website at:
