Tìm hiểu thông tin về nỗ lực soạn thảo điều lệ của Địa Hạt Không Khí, bao gồm các hồ sơ dự thảo điều lệ, cơ hội tham gia công cộng, và các tài liệu về hội thảo công cộng.

The Air District is holding a public workshop in July 2019 to introduce draft rule amendments to Regulation 5 and Rule 6-3, as part of a comprehensive effort to prevent and prepare for future wildfires.

The Air District develops rules and regulations to improve local air quality and protect the health of Bay Area residents.

The Air District’s process for creating and modifying rules and regulations involves developing technical assessments, hosting stakeholder meetings and public workshops, developing draft rules and amendments, and evaluating potential impacts of the rule.

Throughout the rule development process, upcoming events, notices, materials, and reports will be available online for individual rules currently under modification or development.

New rules and amendments that have been adopted by the Air District's Board of Directors can be found in the list of Current Rules. Recently adopted rules and amendments include:

AB 617 Expedited BARCT Implementation Schedule

AB 617 requires air districts to implement Best Available Retrofit Control Technology, or BARCT, on pollution sources located at facilities subject to the Cap-and-Trade program. The Air District has developed and adopted an Expedited BARCT Implementation Schedule to meet these requirements.

Rules Under Development

Note that the Air District is currently updating the structure of the Rule Development section of the website, and information on all rules under development may not be listed immediately. Additional information will be posted as this update progresses.
