Climate 2023

Adopted rule

Administrative Order No.: DEQ-17-2023
Filed and effective: Nov. 16, 2023
See Oregon Bulletin, December 2023

The primary purpose of this joint rulemaking for DEQ's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program, Third Party Verification and Climate Protection Program rules is to propose a variety of clarifications to program requirements and explore a more limited number of policy adjustments.  The rulemaking will incorporate process improvements and technical clarifications for regulated companies while continuing to support the goals of these three programs.   

Advisory committee

In convening this committee, DEQ selected a committee that was large enough to provide diverse perspectives and represent affected parties and stakeholders, while allowing ample opportunity for members to engage.  Advisory committee members will review proposed rule changes and provide feedback on any potential policy, fiscal, and equity impacts of any proposed changes.

Public involvement

The comment period closed at 4 p.m. on Oct. 13, 2023.

For more information, see the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, which includes the notice and proposed rules.
