offsets -- ARB ANNOUNCEMENT OF JUNE DATES FOR CAP-AND-TRADE OFFSET VERIFIER TRAINING Posted: 17 May 2012 13:14:43
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board), in collaboration with our training partner Future Perfect, will conduct ARB offset verifier training on June 18-22 and June 25-29 in Sacramento, California. BACKGROUND: The California Cap on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Market-Based Compliance Mechanisms Regulation was adopted by the California Air Resources Board in October of 2011 and formally went into effect January 1, 2012. Subarticles 13 and 14 of the regulation describe the compliance offset program and the approval of Early Action Offset Credits. Included in these subarticles is a requirement for third-party verification of all GHG emission reductions and GHG removal enhancements before any ARB offset credits may be issued. Only ARB accredited offset verifiers may provide offset verification services under the compliance offset program. Accordingly, ARB has established a program to accredit offset verifiers that meet the regulationís requirements. To become an accredited offset verifier, the applicant must submit a completed Verifier Application to ARB along with the required documentation. Once the verifier applications have been reviewed by ARB and determined to have the potential to meet the minimum qualifications listed in the regulation, the verifier applicant will be notified how to register for ARB approved training courses. ARB and Future Perfect will conduct training on June 18-22 and June 25-29 in Sacramento, California. Future dates will be announced when available. Upon meeting the minimum qualifications listed in the regulation the Executive Officer may accredit the offset verifiers.

We apologize if you have received multiple email messages announcing this training. We inadvertantly left out the Compliance Offset list.
