Q15. What impact does this rule have on small businesses?
A15. As a part of the Regulatory Impact Analysis for this rule, EPA has calculated that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. While EPA estimates that some small businesses in some sectors will be required to report, the cost of reporting will be less than one percent of the average annual sales, even for the sectors with the largest economic impacts.
