The first compliance deadline to sign your operation up (2 or more aircraft) is September 8th — less than a week from today.  This includes Part 91 operators that operate two or more aircraft. 

They define corporate operators that need to sign up as:

From NBAA: 

"Please note that under the PRD rule the following conditions must be satisfied to meet the definition of a `corporate flight department': 

(i) the operator operates two or more aircraft

(ii) the aircraft are standard airworthiness airplanes that require a type

rating under 14 CFR part 61, § 61.31(a) and/or turbine-powered rotorcraft

(iii) the aircraft is operated in furtherance of or incidental to a business; and 

(iv) the operation is solely pursuant to the general operating and flight rules in 14 CFR part 91, or pursuant to a Letter of Deviation Authority (LODA) issued under 14 CFR part 125, § 125.3."
