- If you electronically sign the document and your RCO has an account in CDX and is registered with that account as the RCO of the company in OTAQREG they may electronically sign your registration which means they will not have to mail in the registration forms. They will need to mail any supplemental information required for the registration. You will still need to mail in your Electronic signature agreement . If the RCO does not have the ability to electronically sign the registration then he/she will need to print and mail all forms and agreements
- If you print your forms for signature, be sure you sign the User Responsibility Letter and Electronic Signature Agreement (ESA) and your RCO fills out the proper delegation letter and mail the entire package to EPA at the appropriate address below
Registering companies and facilities through CDX is available for RFG & Anti-dumping registration under Title 40 CFR 80.76, Renewable Fuel Standard registration under Title 40 CFR 80.1150 and Motor Vehicle Diesel Fuel registration under Title 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 )
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.
If your company hires a third party to create reports there is an option for them to submit for you via CDX. Please visit our CDX page for more information.
Submitting a registration through CDX does not constitute a complete registration. After submission, the forms must be printed and signed by a Responsible Corporate Officer and mailed to:
