sf6nonelec -- Friendly Reminder of SF6 Reporting Deadlines for Sales and Research Uses

Posted: 19 Mar 2012 17:33:16
The March 30th regulatory deadline for reporting sales and
research usage of SF6 in California is fast approaching.
California regulations (Title 17, California Code of Regulations,
sections 95340 to 95346) require distributors and sellers of
sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in California to submit annual sales
data to ARB no later than March 30 of the following year.  These
data must provide information on individual transactions
including the intended use by transaction.

Data for the 2011 calendar year must be reported by March 30,
2012.  We thank those who have already sent in their reports. 
For those distributors and sellers who have not yet done so, a
spreadsheet form for recording sales data can be found at
In addition, research users of SF6 in California must report
their usage in the state and other data as outlined in Section
95345 of the regulation.  For those researchers who have not yet
sent in their information, please do so via letter or email
Please submit required information to Steve Church, Air Resources
Engineer, schurch@arb.ca.gov, on or before March 30, 2012. These
reports will verify and quantify California sales and usage of
SF6 and ensure requirements are met.

The regulation to reduce emissions of SF6 from non-electric and
non-semiconductor applications was approved by the Board on
February 26, 2009.  The California Office of Administrative Law
subsequently approved this regulation and filed it with the
Secretary of State.  The regulation became effective January 1,
