Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule Clears OMBThursday, September 17, 2009
(American Meat Institute)
The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA)
Mandatory Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting final
rule today cleared the Office of Management and
Budget. The final rule is expected to
require that emissions from both upstream
production and downstream sources be reported,
as the EPA administrator deems
appropriate. This rulemaking establishes
monitoring, reporting and recordkeeping
requirements on facilities that produce,
import, or emit greenhouse gases above 25,000
CO2 equivalents annually.
The final rule is expected to require the first annual report to be submitted to EPA in 2011, for the calendar year 2010, except for vehicle and engine manufacturers, which will begin reporting for model year 2011.
