NOTE about RY2011-2021 Applicability under 40 CFR Part 98 Subpart OO: Please visit the following EPA page for tools and resources to help you determine whether you are or were subject to GHG reporting under any of these years: https://www3.epa.gov/ghgreporting/help/tool2014/calculator-select.html

This page provides help to users wishing to report back-year data related to HFC supplies (e.g. 2011-2015 data related to AIM) using e-GGRT.  For background information or to download the reporting forms which support HFC back-year information please visit e-GGRT and HFC Data Reporting related to AIM.  The help content below is addresses 2 reporting scenarios:

Suppliers that supplied HFCs from the years 2011-2015 but did not report this data under the GHGRP, and are Subject to Part 98 for RY2020

Information on how to report using the Subpart OO module for Part 98 can be found at the following links:

A supplier that is required to report in Part 98 for RY2020, and additionally needs to prepare RY2011-2015 back-year data, can do so concurrently through e-GGRT. To do so, access the specific facility through the e-GGRT data reporting module, and first complete and upload the RY2020 Subpart OO Suppliers of Industrial Greenhouse Gases data as normal.

Once Reporting year 2020 Subpart OO emissions data is correctly uploaded, download and complete the applicable supplemental 2011-2015 forms that are available at e-GGRT and HFC Data Reporting related to AIM for each reporting year, using one file per year reported. Each file should then be uploaded using the same module and processes used to upload their 2020 Subpart OO Suppliers of Industrial Greenhouse Gases data.

After all appropriate back-reporting years have been uploaded to the module, continue with review, certification and submission of the annual 2020 GHG report. 

Suppliers that supplied HFCs from the years 2011-2015 but not subject to RY2020

Suppliers no longer required to report using Subpart OO Suppliers of Industrial Greenhouse Gases, but required to and did not previously report, may use e-GGRT to report 2011-2013 as well as RY2014 back-year data. To do so, access the supplier (facility) through the e-GGRT data reporting module. To recover or reset any information regarding access to e-GGRT, please use the following links for more information: 

Note that a facility or supplier may be listed as 'Not Expected to Report' if it has previously exited the program or stopped reporting for other reasons.  In this case it is necessary to add it back into active reporting status. If the desired facility or supplier is in the table of "FACILITIES NOT EXPECTED TO REPORT for YYYY", use the button "ADD for YYYY" on the Facility Overview Page to move the facility to the table of expected reporting facilities, and then click "OPEN". 

In some cases, users will need to add Subpart OO to their facility in order to upload the required reporting forms. To do so, select "ADD or REMOVE Subparts", from the bottom of the table (see screenshot below). Then, find and select Subpart OO, and scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click "SAVE". This returns to the "Facility or Supplier Overview" page, and adds the correct Subpart.

After adding Subpart OO to the "Facility or Supplier Overview" (only if needed), clicking users should then access the AIM Help Page: e-GGRT and HFC Data Reporting related to AIM, and download the file, "Subpart OO - Empty Reporting Form for HFC Back-Year Reporters Not Subject to Part 98 for RY2020". Users are asked to only enter cell C23 "GHGRP ID"  on this file, and then save it locally. The GHGRP ID is a unique identification number for every facility in the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program.
