Proposed Changes To GHG Estimating Method Used By Electronics Manufacturers

US EPA is proposing to change the manner which electronics manufacturers calculate and monitor their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The proposed rule, “GHG Reporting Program: Proposed amendments and confidentiality determinations for Subpart I,” was published in the October 16 Federal Register. Proposed changes include revising calculation methods and adding a new method, amending data reporting requirements, and clarifying terms and definitions. The Agency will accept comments until December 17, 2012.

The action also proposes confidentiality determinations for the reporting of the new and revised data elements. EPA said that many of the proposed actions are in response to a petition to reconsider specific aspects of the regulations.
