Regulation 13

Updated 11/5/2018

Learn about the Air District's development process for Regulation 13, which would would establish uniform definitions and requirements for regulating emissions of greenhouse gases and related pollutants in the Bay Area.

Find out about the status and anticipated timeline of the rule development process. Information on hearings, workshops, and other events is provided below, along with supporting documents and materials.

The Air District is developing a new regulation to establish uniform definitions and requirements for regulating emissions of greenhouse gases and related pollutants in the Bay Area. Regulation 13: Climate Pollutants would support other regulations that are designed to reduce emissions, including rules developed as part of the Air District's Basin-Wide Methane Strategy (as outlined in the 2017 Clean Air Plan).

A series of workshops on the development of Regulation 13 and other rule development activity addressing climate pollutants, odors, VOCs, and toxics is planned for late 2018. For details on the workshops, see the Events section of this page.

A concept paper discussing the development of Regulation 13 is available as well.
