The Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) is proposing amendments to District Regulation 12 Rule 15: Petroleum Refining Emissions Tracking (Rule 12-15), and is accepting comments through July 8, 2019. The proposed amendments include earlier submittal deadlines for criteria pollutant, toxic air contaminant, greenhouse gas, and third-party verified greenhouse gas annual emissions inventories to BAAQMD. The proposed amendments also reduce the allotted time for BAAQMD's review of the annual emission inventories and for facility responses. The proposed revisions are available online in the Draft Amendments to Rule 12-15 and summarized in the Request for Comments Notice.

Interested parties can follow the Rule 12-15 amendment development on BAAQMD's website and submit comments to Mark Gage at mgage@baaqmd.gov by July 8, 2019. For questions specific to your facility, please contact Trinity Oakland office at (510) 285-6351.
