EPA Delays Effective Date of 2017 RFS Requirements

Kathleen M Roberts

On January 26, 2017, EPA published a final rule delaying the effective date of 30 EPA regulations, including the RFS Program:  Standards for 2017 and Biomass-Based Diesel Volume for 2018 final rule.  The rulemaking follows the Presidential directive to postpone for sixty days the effective dates of all regulations that had been published in the Federal Register but had not yet taken effect to give the President’s appointees or designees the opportunity for further review and consideration of new or pending regulations.  The new effective date is March 21, 2017.  More information on the RFS final rule is available in the BRAG blog post “EPA Publishes Final 2017 RFS Requirements.
