arbcombo -- JANUARY 11 ARB POSTING OF FIRST 2013 DATE FOR OFFSET VERIFIER TRAINING

Posted: 11 Jan 2013 15:35:47
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board), in collaboration with our
training partner Future Perfect, is pleased to announce the first
2013 date for ARB offset verifier training will be April 22-26 in
Sacramento, California. 

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 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 sections 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.  

Upon meeting the minimum qualifications listed in the regulation
the Executive Officer may accredit the offset verifiers.

For any questions regarding the application forms, please contact
Stephen Shelby in ARBís Climate Change Program Evaluation Branch
at (916) 327-8228.
