EPA/OAR RIN: 2060-AU35 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Revisions and Confidentiality Determinations for Data Elements Under the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule 
Abstract:

This action would amend specific provisions in the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule to improve the quality and consistency of the data collected under the rule, streamline and improve implementation, and clarify minor updates to certain provisions that have been the subject of questions from reporting entities. These changes would include revisions to improve the existing calculation, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements of 40 CFR part 98 by incorporating updates to existing emissions estimation methodologies and providing for collection of additional data to understand new source categories or new emission sources for specific sectors. The changes would improve understanding of the sector-specific processes or other factors that influence greenhouse gas emissions rates, improve verification of collected data, and complement or inform other EPA programs. This action would also improve implementation of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule such as updates to applicability estimation methodologies, providing flexibility for or simplifying calculation and monitoring methodologies, streamlining recordkeeping and reporting, and other minor technical corrections or clarifications. This action would also establish and amend confidentiality determinations for the reporting of certain data elements to be added or substantially revised in these amendments. Further, this action would solicit information that may aid in potential future revisions to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule.
