Background
 
The Regulation requires owners of GIS equipment to reduce
emissions of SF6.  The Regulation sets a limit of a 10 percent
SF6 emission rate in 2011.  Thereafter, the SF6 emission rate is
reduced one percent per year until 2020, whereat the SF6 emission
rate is one percent.
 
On February 2, 2011, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL)
approved sections 95350, 95351, 95352, 95353, 95354, 95355,
95357, 95358 and 95359 of the Regulation to Reduce Sulfur
Hexafluoride (SF6) Emissions from Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS)
(Regulation).  OAL also filed the Regulation with the Secretary
of State on February 2, 2011, and made the Regulation effective
on this same date.  On June 27, 2011, section 95356 of the
Regulation became effective as OAL approved this section and
