Proposed and Promulgated Rules

40 CFR Part 98.360
Federal Register Date Citation Action Description
12/09/2016 81 FR 89188 Final Rule Finalizes revisions to specific provisions covering 29 subparts of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule to streamline implementation, improve data quality, more accurately reflect industry practices, and provide clarification.

Proposed Preamble and Rule (PDF) (91 pp, 890K)
12/24/2014 79 FR 77391 Correction Corrects final rule that appeared in the Federal Register on December 11, 2014 (79 FR 73750). The final rule amends the general provisions of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule to establish chemical-specific and default global warming potentials (GWPs) for a number of fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-GHGs) and fluorinated heat transfer fluids (F-HTFs). The rule also includes conforming changes to the provisions for the Electronics Manufacturing and Fluorinated Gas Production source categories.

12/11/2014 79 FR 73750 Final Rule Finalizes amendments that add chemical-specific and default global warming potentials (GWPs) for fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-GHGs) and fluorinated heat transfer fluids (F-HTFs) to the general provisions of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule, makes conforming changes to the provisions for the Electronics Manufacturing and Fluorinated Gas Production source categories, amends certain provisions of the Fluorinated Gas Production source category, and establishes confidentiality determinations for certain reporting requirements of the Fluorinated Gas Production source category.

Fact Sheet
07/31/2014 79 FR 44332 Proposed Rule Proposes to establish chemical-specific and default global warming potentials (GWPs) for fluorinated greenhouse gases (GHGs) and fluorinated heat transfer fluids (HTFs) that are reported to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) but that do not currently have GWPs under the Program. This would ensure that the atmospheric impacts of all fluorinated GHGs and HTFs are reflected in calculations and reporting under the GHGRP.

11/29/2013 78 FR 71904 Final Rule Finalizes amendments that consist of amendments related to global warming potentials (GWPs), and other amendments largely based on feedback from stakeholders.

04/05/2013 78 FR 20632 Notice of Data Availability Makes available for public comment estimated global warming potentials (GWPs) and the analysis supporting them, for several fluorinated GHGs and fluorinated HTFs. Provides a thirty (30) day comment period following publication in the Federal Register. Comments submitted in response to this notice will inform future amendments to Table A-1 to Part 98, adding the GWPs of some or all of the fluorinated GHGs and fluorinated HTFs listed in the notice.
