Air Cleaner Testing and Certification
This page last reviewed March 29, 2013
The Air Resources Board has adopted a regulation that establishes an ozone emission concentration standard, and requirements for certification, labeling and record keeping for indoor air cleaning devices that are introduced into commerce in California and used in occupied spaces. This page provides information on frequently asked questions, the certification application and instructions, and contact information for the certified laboratories.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) sheet has been developed to address the topics relative to the certification process for devices covered by the Air Cleaner Regulation. It is available in English, Korean and Chinese (simplified and traditional).
The instructions and application form for the certification of indoor air cleaning devices are available. Please review the instructions carefully before filling out the form.
- Application Form, March 1, 2012 (English only, 1 MB). Minor revisions were made to clarify that only the testing laboratories may complete and/or edit Sections E and F of the application form. Completed application forms can now be saved using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
- Supplemental Form (see instructions for use of this form) (English only)
Each application submitted must have an application number. To obtain this number, or if you have any questions regarding the application form, the procedure described in the instructions or the translated documents, please email Michael Gabor or call him at 916-323-2190. Please submit applications and application materials to both Michael Gabor and Victor Mendiola.
