Proposed Revisions and Confidentiality Determinations for Data Elements under the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule

May 23rd, 2023 by Ann Rippe

Proposed Rule Change
Summary: EPA is issuing a supplemental proposed rule to its June 21, 2022 proposed rule (87 FR 39620), which proposed improvements to the requirements of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule, including updates to existing calculation, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements. In this supplemental proposed rule, EPA is proposing additional amendments to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule, including updates to the General Provisions to reflect revised global warming potentials, and is proposing to require reporting of greenhouse gas data from additional sectors—specifically energy consumption; coke calcining; ceramics production; calcium carbide production; and caprolactam, glyoxal, and glyoxylic acid production. The EPA is also proposing additional revisions that would improve implementation of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule, such as updates to emissions calculation methodologies; revisions to reporting requirements to improve verification of reported data and the accuracy of the data collected; and other minor technical amendments, corrections, or clarifications. Finally, this action proposes to establish and amend confidentiality determinations for the reporting of certain data elements to be added or substantially revised in these proposed amendments.
