EPA is exploring opportunities to streamline and modernize its existing fuels regulations under 40 CFR part 80 to update EPA's existing gasoline, diesel, and other fuels regulations to help reduce burden for stakeholders as well as EPA, while improving overall compliance assurance and maintaining environmental performance. EPA intends to achieve this goal in streamlining the existing fuels regulations by: Deleting expired provisions, eliminating redundant compliance provisions (e.g., duplicative registration requirements that are required by every EPA fuels program), and replacing them with a single set of provisions and definitions that would apply across all gasoline, diesel, and other fuels programs currently under 40 CFR part 80.

The workshop will provide the opportunity for EPA to update stakeholders on its progress regarding this streamlining of the existing fuels regulations, and for stakeholders to provide initial feedback as EPA develops its proposed rule.
