Climate 2023

Proposed rule

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

In response to a request under ORS 183.335(4) that DEQ extend its comment period, DEQ has determined that it will extend its comment deadline by 21 days, until Oct. 13, 2023, and will not submit the proposed rule amendments to the EQC until after Nov. 1, 2023. As a result of this action, the deadline for comments is extended from Sept. 22, 2023 at 4 p.m. to Oct. 13, 2023 at 4 p.m.

Submit comments
