Registering companies and facilities through CDX is available for RFG & Anti-dumping registration under 40 CFR 80.76, Renewable Fuel Standard registration under 40 CFR 80.1150 and Motor Vehicle Diesel Fuel registration under 40 CFR 80.597. All three rules require initial registration prior to conducting regulated activities. Submit an updated registration form within 30 days of any change in previous registration information.

If you think you may already be registered, please visit the continuously updated Programs, Company and Facility ID Master List (XLS) (2.4M; Updated daily MS Excel reader Exit EPA Disclaimer)

Please follow the instructions above and mail the appropriate signed letters to EPA. Do not share accounts. CDX accounts are for individuals not companies, submitting information to the EPA using another person's name is a crime.
