EPA Extends Compliance Dates Under RFS Program
On November 26, 2021, EPA issued a proposed rule to modify certain compliance dates under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program. For small refineries only, EPA is proposing to extend the RFS compliance reporting deadline and the associated attest engagement reporting deadline for compliance year 2019. EPA is also proposing to extend the RFS compliance reporting deadline and the associated attest reporting deadline for 2020 and 2021 compliance years for all obligated parties. Lastly, EPA is also proposing to change the way that it determines future RFS compliance and attest engagement reporting deadlines.
Comments on the proposed rule are due on or prior to January 3, 2022.
