The California Air Resources Board, also referred to as CARB or ARB, is the agency responsible for air quality in the California state government.
If your company or facility is required to have to your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions verified under the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB32), LRQA can help with our accredited ARB verification services.
As one of the first verification bodies accredited by the California Air Resource Board, LRQA is a recognized verifier for the ARB mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting program, and we continue to be one of the most active verification bodies under the ARB program.
When you choose LRQA, you’re choosing ARB lead verifiers who hold sector-specific accreditation for all ARB sectors including general stationary combustion, natural gas and electricity transactions, oil and gas systems, and process emissions.
