Designated Representative - Part 98 requires each facility and supplier to have one and only one Designated Representative (DR), who shall be responsible for certifying, signing, and submitting GHG reports. If the facility is required to submit reports under 40 CFR 75, the same individual shall be the Designated Representative under both Part 75 and Part 98. The Designated Representative is an individual selected by an agreement binding on the owners and operators of the facility or supplier to meet the requirements of Part 98.

Alternate Designated Representative - Part 98 allows the facility or supplier to designate one Alternate Designated Representative (ADR), who shall be an individual selected by an agreement binding on the owners and operators, and may act on behalf of the designated representative, of such facility or supplier.

Agent - A DR or ADR may delegate his or her authority to one or more individuals, known as Agents, to submit an electronic GHG report.

If you are reporting confidential business information (CBI), please note that the DR, ADR and Agents have equal ability to access, view, enter and submit all e-GGRT data for a facility or supplier.

An important part of facility registration is to use e-GGRT to identify for a facility or supplier the DR, optional ADR, and one or more Agents. The following subsections describe how to identify the DR, optional ADR, and one or more Agents for your facility or supplier.

Step 1: Identify the DR and Optional ADR

e-GGRT lets you name yourself or someone else as the ADR, or name no ADR. To name yourself, select "I will be the ADR" and provide your name, telephone number and email address. To name someone else, select "I want to appoint a ADR", then provide the name, telephone number and email address of that person. To appoint no one, select "There will be no ADR".
