Compliance Reporting Schedule
Each covered state and alternative fuel provider fleet must file an annual compliance report with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to meet Energy Policy Act (EPAct) requirements. Review this compliance schedule for important reporting deadlines.

Reporting Deadline for Model Year 2018
Fleets may submit their annual reports during the relevant model year but no later than December 31 following that model year. For example, a report for model year 2018, which began on Sept. 1, 2017, is due by Dec. 31, 2018.

Fleets must retain vehicle-acquisition records and compliance reports for 3 years after the reporting deadline or the date when the report was filed (whichever is later). For example, materials related to a report filed on Nov. 1, 2018, for the 2018 model year (due Dec. 31, 2018) must be retained by the fleet until Dec. 31, 2021.
