Today, EPA finalized its revisions to the Greenhouse Gas [GHG] Reporting Rule and Final Confidentiality Determinations for New or Substantially Revised Data Elements. 

Specifically, the EPA is “…amending the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Rule to implement technical corrections, clarifying revisions, and other amendments to improve the quality and consistency of the data collected by the EPA. Among other changes, the EPA is amending the Rule’s table of global warming potentials to revise the values for certain greenhouse gases. This action also establishes confidentiality determinations for the reporting of new or substantially revised data elements (i.e., requiring additional or different data to be reported) contained in these final amendments to the GHG reporting rule.”  It goes into effect on January 1, 2014.

The rule had been proposed on April 2.  More information about this rule, and related ones, can be found at:
