Read Frequently Asked Questions

This greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting training will help facilities that have not prepared or not prepared comprehensively for this rule and for those who have, but are running into complications in ensuring that systems are reliable.

Why Should You Attend:
The federal Mandatory GHG Reporting Rule (40 CFR Part 98) is the USEPA’s attempt to collect baseline GHG emissions data from a large variety of facilities who will likely be subject to future GHG emission reduction rules. Because this represents a baseline to base future reductions, the USEPA expects accurate data to be determined using consistent, complex methods. All submitted data must be certified by a company Designated Representative, who is liable for its accuracy. Facilities preparing for the rule are finding that they are spending much more resources than expected. Part 98 requires a high ranking manager to certify GHG emissions, risking penalties.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • Background about the rule and its goals;
  • How to determine whether your facility is Part 98- applicable and, if so, which operations are covered;
  • The types of common methodologies allowed to calculate GHG emissions;
  • How to collect plant data and manage it in compliance with the rule’s stringent QA/QC standards;
  • Compliance issues that have arisen among affected firms.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Introduction.
  • Description of regulation.
  • Applicability standards.
