A823. 40 CFR Part 98.2(i) in the General Provisions, outlines the criteria for facilities to take the “offramp” to exit the program.  A facility that has reported total non-biogenic GHG emissions below 15,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (mtCO2e) for three consecutive years or below 25,000 mtCO2e for five consecutive years can discontinue reporting for all direct emitter subparts.

Example for a facility that is both a direct emitter and supplier: The off-ramp requirements for suppliers are applied separately from those for direct emitters for facilities that are both suppliers and direct emitters.  This occurs whether the supplier and direct emitter report as two separate entities in e-GGRT or, for simplicity, as one entity in e-GGRT.  For example, if a facility reports under subpart Y - Petroleum Refineries (a direct emitter subpart) and subpart MM - Suppliers of Petroleum Products (a supplier subpart), and the facility meets the off-ramp requirements in 40 CFR 98.2(i)(4) for the GHG quantities reported under subpart MM but does not meet the off-ramp requirements in 40 CFR 98.2(i)(1) or (2) for GHG emissions under subpart Y, then the facility may cease reporting under subpart MM while still reporting under subpart Y (or vice versa). Similar situations may arise for facilities subject to Subpart NN – Suppliers of Natural Gas and Natural Gas Liquids and Subpart W – Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems, Subpart OO and Subpart L – Fluorinated GHG Production, and facilities that capture CO2 and report under Subpart PP.  Other cases are also possible.
