The FY2008 Consolidated Appropriations Act required EPA to propose a rule mandating the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions in the US. On April 10, 2009, the proposed rule appeared in the Federal Register with a comment period that ended on June 9. On September 22, 2009, the final rule was signed by the Administrator of EPA. The preamble and final regulatory text will be published in the Federal Register in the near future. This memorandum summarizes the requirements of EPA’s final rule and will be of interest to all NCASI member companies.
