Registration for Portable Equipment

On September 17, 1997, The California Office of Administrative Law approved the Regulation to Establish a Statewide Portable Equipment Registration Program. The California Air Resources Board (ARB) accepts applications for registration of equipment under this program.

Permits issued under this program must be honored by all air districts throughout California. Operators of permitted portable sources are subject to notification requirements to the host Air District, upon relocation to the Air District's jurisdiction.

Application forms can be downloaded through the CARB's web site for the Statewide Portable Equipment Registration Program.

The Bay Area Air District has a new online PERP inspection request form. Please note the old PDF request forms submitted will be returned with instructions to instead complete the new online form. Thank you.
