The “Regulation for the Reporting of Criteria Air Pollutants and Toxic Air Contaminants,” or CTR, was approved by the Office of Administrative Law and is effective January 1, 2020. The first reports are due May 1, 2020 for the 2019 data year, with some districts indicating reports will be required sooner. The annual report requires quantification of criteria air pollutant and toxic air contaminant emissions. Generally, the facilities required to report are:
- CA GHG Reporters
- Facilities located in an air district with any non-attainment areas for criteria air pollutants and that are authorized by one or more air permits to emit 250+ tpy of any applicable nonattainment pollutant or its precursors at the beginning of the data year
- High-priority facilities (pursuant to AB 2588)
The CTR Report will be submitted to the local air districts, who will then submit to CARB on facilities' behalf. For more details, the full CTR regulation can be found here, and Trinity is hosting a webinar on January 15th, with registration available here.
