The Compliance Instrument Tracking System Service (CITSS) is being upgraded to provide Cap-and-Trade Program participants improved features and more detailed account information. The upgrades included in CITSS version 3.0 are scheduled to be released Thursday, August 1, 2013. CITSS version 3.0 provides expanded functionality and information, including: • Facility information (entity management/account consolidation) • Corporate association management • Limited exemption and holding limit management • Enhanced reporting features The CITSS can be accessed at https://www.wci-citss.org. Following the release of CITSS version 3.0, ARB staff will be updating the CITSS accounts with account consolidation and corporate association data previously submitted to ARB, as well as limited exemption data based on verified emissions. ARB will complete data entry by August 19, 2013. The CITSS will be automatically sending emails to account representatives informing them of updates during this data entry period. To ensure a smooth transition to the CITSS version 3.0, please refrain from changing any entity registration data accessed through the CITSS General tab or the Facilities tab until August 19, 2013. Any change in entity registration data made before August 19 could adversely affect an entity’s ability to participate in the August 2013 auction. Training: A webinar on the expanded CITSS functions included in this release are being prepared and scheduled. Details on the webinar will be announced soon. Further assistance can be obtained from the CITSS help desk. The Help Desk is staffed Monday through Friday 6:00 a.m. Pacific Time through 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time and is accessible for messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have any questions about using the CITSS, please contact the CITSS Help Desk at: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 1-866-682-7561. Background: The California Air Resources Board’s (ARB) California Cap-and-Trade Program became effective on January 1, 2012, with an enforceable compliance obligation beginning with calendar year 2013 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. California is working with WCI Partner jurisdictions and WCI, Inc. to develop systems to support the common goals of developing a regional program and the implementation of state and provincial GHG trading programs, including California’s Cap-and-Trade Program. One of the systems being developed is the Compliance Instrument Tracking System Service (CITSS). The CITSS is the record of ownership of compliance instruments; records information related to accounts; enables and records compliance instrument transfers; facilitates compliance verification; and supports market oversight through the collection of relevant information.
