California Air Resources Board (ARB) has released the Cap-and-Trade Program guidance document for opt-in covered entities and the accompanying Opt-In Request Form on the ARB website. The guidance document discusses information regarding opting into the program as well as suggested dates for submitting documentation. To download a copy of the Cap-and-Trade Program opt-in guidance document, go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/optinguidance.pdf To download a copy of the Cap-and-Trade Program Opt-In Request Form, go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/optinform.docx An opt-in covered entity is an entity that voluntarily elects to be covered under the Cap-and-Trade Program and surrender allowances for each metric ton of greenhouse gas it emits. Opt-in covered entities may be eligible to receive free allowances based on the same criteria as covered entities, and can elect to opt out of the program at the end of a compliance period if its greenhouse gas emissions remain under the inclusion threshold. In order to become an opt-in covered entity, the entity must be in one of the sectors covered under the Cap-and-Trade Program, but must not already be required to comply with the regulation because it emits less than 25,000 MTCO2e annually. In order for an entity to voluntarily participate in the Cap-and-Trade Program as an opt-in covered entity, we request that you submit the Opt-in Request Form, distributed through the link above, to the Air Resources Boardís Executive Officer for approval by the dates given in the guidance document for opt-in covered entities. The guidance document for opt-in covered entities outlines the information ARB requests in order to opt in to the program.
