The California Air Resources Board (ARB) recently published proposed updates to the U.S. Forest Projects Compliance Offset Protocol. The proposed updates include the incorporation of several quantitative, administrative and implementation clarifications or corrections, as well as changes to the common practice values in the assessment area data file, and the site class groupings for high and low designations.

On September 18, 2014, the California Air Resources Board voted to delay the implementation of the proposed updates to the assessment area data file and revised site class groupings  and to  include these proposed revisions in the upcoming Regulatory Update, which will be presented to the board in advance of the December 11-12th 2014 Board meeting. This webinar is presented to allowing interested parties to learn about these updates and ask questions.

Please join the American Carbon Registry and guest speakers from the California ARB and the US Forest Service (USFS) Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program to learn about how the FIA data is collected and updated, how common practice values were generated within this dataset and why site class groups were reassigned. The presentation will also include an overview of the upcoming Regulatory Update process. The presentation will include a Q&A session.
