Vapor recovery systems at service stations have been used in
California since the 1970s.  In 2008, ARB adopted regulations
requiring EVR for ASTs.  The AST EVR regulations include three
modules: Standing Loss Control (SLC) to reduce emissions
resulting from the daily heating and cooling of stored fuel,
Phase I EVR to control emissions during transfer of fuel from
delivery trucks into ASTs, and Phase II EVR to control emissions
during fueling of vehicles from ASTs.  The regulations
established April 1, 2013 and July 1, 2014 as dates for existing
ASTs to comply with SLC and Phase I EVR, respectively.  The
compliance deadline for Phase II has not been established due to
lack of certified equipment.

On February 28, 2014, ARB issued an AST EVR Regulatory Advisory
that provides certain AST owners/operators with interim relief
from the requirement to upgrade their tanks with Phase I EVR. 
The purpose of these workshops is to inform interested parties
about the AST EVR Regulatory Advisory and to solicit feedback
that can be incorporated into the November 2014 regulatory
amendments.  In the event that relief provided by the Regulatory
Advisory differs from the final regulatory amendments approved by
the Board in November, AST owners and operators will be provided
additional time to comply, which would be specified in the final
