EPA Finalizes GHG Reporting Rule

Just yesterday, we posted about EPA’s GHG rule still being in the proposed status.  Today EPA announced that the rule has been finalized.  The first annual reports for the largest emitting facilities, covering calendar year 2010, will be submitted to EPA in 2011.

Under the rule, fossil fuel and industrial GHG suppliers, motor vehicle and engine manufacturers, and facilities that emit 25,000 metric tons or more of CO2 equivalent per year will be required to report GHG emissions data to EPA annually.

Vehicle and engine manufacturers outside of the light-duty sector will begin phasing in GHG reporting with model year 2011. Some source categories included in the proposed rule are still under review.
