New mandatory LCFS verification and validation program required beginning January 1, 2020 for the California Low Carbon Fuels Standard.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) finalized amendments to the Low Carbon Fuels Standard (LCFS) which became effective January 1, 2019. One major change in these amendments is the requirement to complete a third party LCFS validation of fuel pathway applications as well as a third party LCFS verification of ongoing reporting of carbon intensity calculations and documentation. Christianson recently received accreditation as an LCFS verification body to perform these engagements which are a natural connection to our compliance suite of services.
As we enter into the beginning stages of these services, please check out and sign up for our LCFS Monthly Newsletter. We are providing FREE status updates and relevant facts surrounding the verification and validation process as we begin these new services.
Many stakeholders have common questions on the new LCFS regulations that we have answered on our FAQ page. If you have a question that is not listed in the FAQ, please submit it at the bottom of the FAQ page and we will address it.
