Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP)

Special Provisions for Owners and Operators of Facilities and Suppliers Newly Subject to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program

The Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) covers facilities and suppliers who are subject to the rule requirements of 40 CFR part 98, or Part 98. Reporters are required to submit annual reports to EPA on greenhouse gas (GHG) data collected during the reporting year. The EPA finalized a rule amending Part 98 to implement corrections, revisions, and other amendments including amending the global warming potential (GWP) values for certain GHGs. This rule is effective on January 1, 2014. As a result of this change, there may be facilities and suppliers that would become subject to the GHGRP for the first time.

For these new reporters, EPA has provided the option to use best available monitoring methods (BAMM) from January 1, 2014 to March 31, 2014 for the 2014 reporting year. In order to use BAMM beyond March 31, 2014, a formal BAMM request must be submitted to EPA by January 31, 2014 using the e-GGRT system. Otherwise new reporters must begin following all applicable monitoring and quality assurance/quality control requirements as stated in Part 98 as of April 1, 2014.

EPA is planning on conducting a training webinar in January to provide further assistance on the registration process and on how to submit BAMM requests.
