Rule Information

Proposed and Promulgated Rules

40 CFR part 98.450
Federal Register Date Citation Action Description
Pending Pending Proposed Rule Proposes to establish chemical-specific and default global warming potentials (GWPs) for fluorinated greenhouse gases (GHGs) and fluorinated heat transfer fluids (HTFs) that are reported to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) but that do not currently have GWPs under the Program. This would ensure that the atmospheric impacts of all fluorinated GHGs and HTFs are reflected in calculations and reporting under the GHGRP.
