arbcombo -- 2011 Verification Program Updates for ARB-accredited GHG verifiers Posted: 24 May 2011 12:19:52
ARB staff is providing ARB-accredited verifiers with updated information to support verification activities in 2011. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions. (1) ARB staff has revised the Verifier’s Technical Guidance document on the public website. Revisions were minor, but please re-review the contents as a refresher. ARB staff has also posted a revised FAQ, which now includes power entities. Please review these common questions and ARB staff responses in detail. http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/reporting/ghg-ver/ghg-ver.htm. (2) A new COI/NOVS form is required for all 2010 verifications in 2011. The NOVS form must also be included, even if a site visit is not scheduled. Be sure you include the correct lead verifier and internal reviewer – changes in those roles requires a new COI form to be submitted. (3) Facilities subject to triennial verification are not required to be verified again in 2011, even if they received an adverse verification opinion in 2010. For facilities subject to triennial verification that received an adverse verification opinion in 2010 on a 2009 emissions data report, verification is highly recommended. (4) The existing Mandatory Reporting Regulation is being used for 2010 verifications. ARB adopted changes in December 2010, and those changes will be in effect for 2011 emission data reports in 2012. (5) If you have constructive suggestions to improve the Verification Program, please consider scheduling a conference call between ARB staff and your verification body. We would appreciate any feedback you have to offer. Lastly, the Verification Section has a new manager. David Edwards, Ph.D., was appointed as the manager of the Emissions Quality Assessment and Verification Section to replace Miss Rajinder Sahota. David received his Ph.D. from Princeton in Chemistry and has worked at ARB for over 3 years in areas of greenhouse gas emissions assessment, life-cycle assessment, GHG protocol development, and GHGs from local government operations. Miss Sahota has moved to manage the development of the Offset Program within ARB’s cap and trade program. You can contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-323-4887.
