EPA Gives Greenhouse|Gas Reporters More Time

WASHINGTON (CN) - The reporting deadline for the Environmental Protection Agency's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program has been extended from March 31 to sometime in late summer, the agency announced Monday.

The EPA was prompted to extend the deadline after the commercial sector indicated that companies needed additional time to provide the detail required by the reports.

The reporting program, implemented in 2009, requires facilities that emit 25,000 metric tons or more per year of greenhouse gases to submit annual reports to the EPA.

In addition, suppliers of products that would result in greenhouse gas emissions if released, burned or oxidized, and facilities that inject CO2 underground for geologic sequestration, are also required to submit annual reports to the agency.

The EPA said that the extension will allow EPA more time to test the automatic data entry system used in the reports and allow submitted reports to be fine tuned before their final due date.
