Or. Admin. R. 340-242-0070 - What are the Major Requirements of ECO?

To comply with ECO, employers must:

(1) Conduct a baseline survey of employees to establish a baseline auto trip rate (or provide documentation of the current auto trip rate that is at least as accurate as a survey would provide);
(2) Calculate a target auto trip rate by reducing the baseline auto trip rate by 10 percent;
(3) Submit a registration form as supplied by the Department;
(4) Design and implement a trip reduction strategy that has the potential to achieve the target auto trip rate by the target compliance deadline and the potential to maintain the target auto trip rate;
(5) Either:
(a) Prepare and implement an auto trip reduction plan for each work site and submit the plan to the Department for approval; or

NOTE: Enforcement will be based upon implementing the approved plan, see OAR 340-242-0110.

(b) Provide written notice to the Department of participation in an equivalent commute trip reduction program.

NOTE: Enforcement will be based on good faith effort, see OAR 340-242-0180 and special requirements in OAR 340-242-0110.

(6) Survey employees every two years, report survey findings to the Department; and
(7) Continue to implement strategies to achieve or maintain the target auto trip rate.

NOTE: This rule is included in the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan as adopted by the Environmental Quality Commission under OAR 340-200-0040.
