In this action, the EPA is providing notice that it is extending the comment period on the proposed rule titled “Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program: Proposed Amendments and Confidentiality Determinations for Subpart I” which was published on October 16, 2012. The previous deadline for submitting public comment on that rule was December 17, 2012. The EPA is extending that deadline to January 16, 2013. This extension will provide the general public additional time for participation and comments.
In addition, the EPA is notifying the public that additional documentation related to this proposed rule was entered into the docket on November 8, 2012 and is available for public review. This documentation summarizes a call between the Semiconductor Industry Association and the EPA held on October 24, 2012 and provides additional information in response to questions raised on that call, including additional information regarding the calculation of the “Tier 2a” emission factors that appear in Tables I-11 and I-12 of the proposed rule and regarding the identification of an error in those calculations. The two new documents added to the docket to provide this information are “EPA SIA Call Summary from October 24 2012” and “Tier 2a NF3 and C2F6 Emission Factor Calculations”. The EPA encourages the public to review these documents when considering comments on this proposed rule.
