Facilities Pending Registration
Any facilities or suppliers you have begun to register will remain in a “Pending” status until the Designated Representative (DR) that was identified during registration has accepted his or her appointment as DR. After that, the facility will move from FACILITIES PENDING REGISTRATION section to the YOUR FACILITIES section below. Other users who accept appointments to become the Alternate Designated Representative (ADR) or Agent for a facility will see that facility listed on their home page.

About Facility Registration
Facilities and suppliers subject to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) must register online through e-GGRT. Applicability of the rule to your facility or operation depends on the Greenhouse gas (GHG) source categories located at the facility or supplier, the emission level of greenhouse gases and the production capacity. See the General Provisions Info Sheet for more information.
For help in assessing whether your facility or supply operation is required to report GHG emissions in Cal e-GGRT, refer to the Applicability Tool. Note that information tailored to suppliers and other affected entities can also be found there.
Facility or Supplier Reporting by Subpart
Under the GHGRP, your operation may report at the facility level, the supplier (corporate) level, or both, depending on the subparts of the rule that apply to you. 40 CR 98 requires Suppliers of Natural Gas and Natural Gas Liquids (Subpart NN), Suppliers of Industrial GHGs (Subpart OO), and Suppliers of Carbon Dioxide (Subpart PP) to report GHG emissions using e-GGRT at the supplier (corporate) level. Reporters under all other subparts are required to report at the facility level.
If your operation reports as both a facility and a supplier under different subparts, then you may assign one Designated Representative (DR) for the facility and a different DR for the supplier.
40 CR 98 requires Suppliers of Coal-based Liquid Fuels (Subpart LL) and Suppliers of Petroleum (Subpart MM) to report to EPA using OTAQREG, not e-GGRT.
