Current law states that all applications for exemption to the Standard must be received by Commerce between 365 and 180 days before the scheduled compliance date.
We understand this application time frame may cause concern, since buildings with denied exemptions could have very little time to meet the compliance deadline. We are currently working on guidelines that will allow for application for exemption at any point prior to 180 days before the compliance date. We will post notification of updated guidelines to the Clean Buildings webpage once they have been finalized.
