Except as provided in subsection (b), regulated parties, credit generators, and aggregators must use the Oregon Fuels Reporting System to submit an annual compliance report to DEQ not later than April 30 for the compliance period ending on December 31 of the previous year.
Small importers of finished fuels may submit a supplemental annual report using the Oregon Fuels Reporting System, not later than April 30 for the compliance period ending on December 31 of the previous year.
General reporting requirements for annual compliance reports. Regulated parties, credit generators, and aggregators must submit annual compliance reports that meet, at minimum, the general and specific requirements for quarterly progress reports and include the following information:
The total credits and deficits generated by the regulated party, credit generator, or aggregator in the current compliance period, calculated in the Oregon Fuels Reporting System as provided in the equations in OAR 340-253-1020 (Calculating Credits and Deficits);
Any credits carried over from the previous compliance period;
Any deficits carried over from the previous compliance period;
The total credits acquired from other regulated parties, credit generators, and aggregators;
The total credits sold or transferred; and
The total credits retired within the Oregon Fuels Reporting System to meet the compliance obligation.
All pending credit transfers must be completed prior to submittal of the annual compliance report.
Correcting a previously submitted report. A regulated party, credit generator, or aggregator may ask DEQ to re-open a previously submitted quarterly progress or annual compliance report for corrective edits and re-submittal. The requestor must submit an “Unlock Report Request Form” within the Oregon Fuels Reporting System. The requestor is required to provide justification for the report corrections and must indicate the specific corrections to be made to the report. Each submitted request is subject to DEQ approval. DEQ approval of a corrected report does not preclude DEQ enforcement based on misreporting.
