EPA Proposes Mandatory GHG Reporting Rule

PRACTICE GROUPS

March 10, 2009 newsletter (PDF)

Proposed reporting requirements are designed to cover all sectors of the U.S. economy, laying the foundation for the development of a comprehensive cap-and-trade system. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today made available a pre-publication draft of its proposed rule for imposing mandatory reporting requirements for greenhouse gas (GHG) requirements on “large emission sources.” The proposed rule has not yet been published in the Federal Register, but a public comment period will be open until at least May 10, 2009 (60 days after publication).
