EPA Issues Extension to Greenhouse Gas Reporting Deadline

Friday, March 18, 2011

(American Meat Institute)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final rule that extends the deadline for reporting 2010 data under the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Program to September 30, 2011.  The original deadline was March 31, 2011.  EPA previously announced its intent to extend the deadline on March 1, 2011.

EPA’s GHG Reporting Program, launched in October 2009, requires the reporting of GHG data from large emission sources across a range of industry sectors, as well as suppliers of products that would emit GHGs if released or combusted.

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 this reporting deadline extension, the new deadline for registering with e-GGRT is August 1, 2011.
