USEPA's New Deadline to Report GHG Emissions is September 30, 2011

This post was written by David Wagner.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a final rule today extending the deadline for reporting 2010 data under the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Program to September 30, 2011. The original deadline was March 31, 2011, and the new deadline falls just about 2 years after the initial rule was issued. Under the GHG Reporting Program entities required to submit data must register with the electronic GHG reporting tool (e-GGRT) no later than 60 days before the reporting deadline. With the extension, the new deadline for registering with e-GGRT is August 1, 2011.

The GHG Reporting Program primarily covers GHG-emitting facilities, fossil fuel suppliers, and industrial gas suppliers whose aggregate GHG emissions exceed 25,000 metric tons carbon-dioxide equivalent per year. It also covers facilities in certain emissions intensive source categories (e.g., cement manufacturing and petroleum refining).
