How Often Must my Reports be Verified?

In general, the more complex your facility, the more often you must verify:

Verification Schedule: All facilities must verify on either an annual or triennial schedule:

    Annual schedule: The following must verify their reports annually:
  • Retail Providers, marketers, and operators of petroleum refineries and hydrogen plants
  • Operators of general stationary combustion facilities in the oil and gas sector
  • Electricity generators and cogeneration facilities with a nameplate capacity at or above 10MW
    Triennial Schedule: The following must obtain a verification of data submitted in 2010, and then every third year thereafter. (E.g. 2013’s data, then 2016’s data, etc.)
  • Cement Plants, unless the Plant undergoes a change significant enough to require a change in the plant’s AQMD or EPA permit, in which case the Operator must verify the first full year of data following the change in the permit
  • Electricity generating and cogeneration facilities combusting pure biomass, or geothermal
  • Operators of electricity generation or cogeneration facilities with a nameplate capacity below 10MW
  • Operators of stationary combustion facilities, except oil and gas sector facilities
