EPA Seeks Small Business Input on Emission Standards for Light-Duty and Medium-Duty Vehicles

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is inviting qualified small businesses, governments, and not-for-profit organizations to participate as Small Entity Representatives (SERs) for a Small Business Advocacy Review Panel. This Panel will focus on the agency’s development of new standards aimed at reducing air pollution from greenhouse gases and criteria air pollutants (such as nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and particulate matter), from light- and medium-duty vehicles. The new proposed standards would affect companies that manufacture or sell passenger cars, light trucks, and certain larger pickups, vans, and trucks.

Small entities that may be subject to the rule requirements can self-nominate to participate, as may other representatives such as trade associations.

EPA requests self-nominations by May 31, 2022. Advocacy will continue to accept self-nominations until the panel meets with the SERs.
