                              Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) Subparts LL & MM
                                            Registration Guidance Document
In response to the FY2008 Consolidated Appropriations Act (H.R. 2764; Public Law 110-161), EPA has issued the Greenhouse Gas
Reporting Program (GHGRP) under 40 CFR Part 98, which requires reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from large sources
and suppliers in the United States. Under Part 98, suppliers of fossil fuels or industrial GHGs, manufacturers of vehicles and engines,
and facilities that emit 25,000 metric tons or more per year of GHG emissions are required to submit annual reports to EPA.  Part 98
was published in the Federal Register (www.regulations.gov) on October 30, 2009 under Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2008-0508-
2278 and became effective December 29, 2009.

Subpart LL consists of producers, importers, and exporters of products listed  in Table MM-1 of Subpart MM that are coal-based
(coal-to-liquid products). A producer of coal-to-liquid products is any owner or operator who converts coal into liquid products (e.g.,
gasoline, diesel) using the Fischer-Tropsch or an alternative process.  Suppliers of coal-to-liquid products that meet the applicability
criteria in the General Provisions (40 CFR 98.2) must report GHG emissions.

Subpart MM consists of petroleum refineries and importers and exporters of petroleum products and natural gas liquids as listed in
Table MM-1 of Subpart MM.  A petroleum refinery for the purpose of Subpart MM is any facility engaged in producing petroleum
products through the distillation of crude oil.

This guidance document is intended to assist parties regulated under the GHGRP Subparts LL & MM register with Central  Data
Exchange (CDX) under OTAQReg. This document should be used in conjunction with the appropriate GHGRP registration web page
(http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/fuels/fuelsregistration.htm) and the CDX User Guide
(http://www.epa.gov/otaq/regs/fuels/420bl0022.pdf).
For questions regarding the rule (40 CFR Part 98) or where you should register, please email GHGMRR@epa.gov or see the
Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program web page.
For questions regarding registration in CDX with the OTAQReg program, please email EPAFuelsPrograms@epa.gov.

Companies may be required to register for BOTH e-GGRT and OTAQReg. You  will only need one user name and password  per user;
this will log you in to both registration and reporting systems.
