Regulation 13: Climate Pollutants

Learn about the Air District's development process for Regulation 13, which would establish uniform definitions 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 for regulating emissions of climate 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 was held in late 2018 to cover the development of Regulation 13 and other rule development activity addressing climate pollutants, odors, VOCs, and toxics. A concept paper discussing the development of Regulation 13 was made available for these workshops.

In June 2019, the Air District will host another series of workshops on the development of Regulation 13 and other rule development activity for climate pollutants. For details on the workshops, see the Events section of this page.

Workshop materials, including a workshop report and draft regulatory language for Regulation 13, will be posted prior to the workshop dates.
