Subarticle 4. Requirements for Verification of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Data Reports and Requirements Applicable to Emissions Data Verifiers

§ 95130. Requirements for Verification of Emissions Data Reports. Operators shall obtain the services of an accredited verification body for purposes of verifying emissions data reports submitted under this article, as specified in section 95103(c).

  • (a)

    Annual Verification.

    • (1)

      Operators required to obtain annual verification as specified in section 95103(c) shall be subject to full verification requirements in the first year that verification is required. Upon completion of a positive verification opinion under full verification requirements, the operator may choose to obtain two years of less intensive verification services. This cycle may be repeated in subsequent three-year cycles, but full verification requirements shall apply at least once every three years.

    • (2)

      Operators subject to annual verification shall not use the same verification body for a period of more than six consecutive years. If an operator is required or elects to contract with another verification body, the operator may contract verification services from the previous verification body only after not using the previous verification body for at least three years.

  • (b)

    Triennial Verification.

  • (1)

    Operators required to obtain triennial verification under section 95103(c) shall be subject to full verification requirements every year that verification is required. However, such operators may choose to obtain less intensive verification services for the two years following completion of full verification services and prior to the next three-year cycle.

  • (2)

    Operators subject to triennial verification requirements shall not use the same verification body for more than two consecutive verification cycles. If an operator is required or elects to contract with another verification body, the operator may contract verification services from the previous verification body only after not using the previous verification body for at least three years.

(c) Operators who are members of the California Climate Action Registry may use the same verification body for ARB and CCAR emissions data reports, provided that body has met both ARB and CCAR accreditation requirements. When an operator is required to rotate verification bodies by the California Climate Action Registry, the operator shall also rotate the verification body used to meet the verification requirements of this article if the operator chooses to use the same verification body.
