U.S. Court of Appeals Decision on EPA SNAP Program – Appeals Filed

As a follow-up to our August 30, 2017, communication regarding the U.S. Court of Appeals Decision on the EPA SNAP Program, on September 22, 2017, Chemours, Honeywell and the Natural Resources Defense Council filed petitions (appeals) with the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals for rehearing of the court’s decision to vacate EPA SNAP Rule 20. With the filing of the appeals, the August 8, 2017, decision is stayed resulting in the original compliance dates of the SNAP rules remaining in effect for the foreseeable future.

The next step in the process is for the U.S. Court of Appeals to decide whether to hear the appeal. The timing on when the Court will decide to hear or deny the appeal is uncertain, but it is anticipated the decision making process will take 2 to 3 months to complete from the September 22, 2017 appeal filing. If the court decides to hear the appeal, it is also uncertain how long the process will take and could be an extended period of time.

Given the timing to make a decision on hearing an appeal and that the SNAP Rules remain in effect due to the appeal filings, customers need to comply with the original SNAP Rule 20 timeline for conversion to acceptable refrigerants:
