icp -- Public Webcast to Discuss Modifications to Independent Contractor Approval Program on April 30, 2014 at 1:00 pm Posted: 15 Apr 2014 17:13:35
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) invites you to participate in a webcast and dial-in conference call to discuss changes to ARB's Independent Contractor Program. The webcast and dial-in conference call will be held as indicated below and consist of a 20 minute presentation by ARB staff, followed by a question and answer session. Date: April 30, 2014 Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Location: Online and conference call The Independent Contractor Program webcast notice, access instructions, call-in details, and agenda will be posted by April 23, 2014, on ARB's Independent Contractor website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/ba/icp/icp.htm. If you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Gugeler at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone at (916) 322-0221. Background: ARB grants approvals to Independent Contractors to perform any published stationary source test methods used for compliance purposes in California as an alternative to these tests being performed by ARB staff. The Independent Contractor must be able to perform both the sampling and the analysis in-house and neither may be subcontracted to an outside contractor. Approvals are granted based on the Independent Contractor's ability to meet general program criteria and the specific requirements of the individual test method requested. ARB does not require that testing contractors be approved prior to conducting testing in California. The purpose of the webcast and dial-in conference call is to inform interested parties of recent actions ARB has taken to streamline the Independent Contractor Program. The goals are to streamline the initial approval and renewal processes, and to redistribute resources from document review to full renewal audits of Independent Contractor capabilities.
