Compliance Offset Projects
All compliance offset projects must be developed according to ARB approved Compliance Offset Protocols. Offset Project Operators must list their offset projects with an approved Offset Project Registry such as American Carbon Registry and be verified by an ARB accredited verifier to be eligible for ARB offset credits.
ARB Compliance Offset Protocols
ARB has approved five Compliance Offset Protocols for projects based in the U.S. The ARB Compliance Offset Protocols and related documents are available for download from ARB's Compliance Offset Program webpage.
