On October 15, EPA Administrator Wheeler signed the Fuel Streamlining text confirming the regulation will be implemented on January 1, 2021. The EPA is planning to hold a virtual workshop on December 9-10, 2020, on the Fuels Streamlining rule ahead of its implementation date.
Tentatively, the workshop is scheduled from 9am-4pm EST on both days. All attendees must pre-register for the workshop by notifying Nick Parsons at ASD-Registration@epa.gov.
