On Dec. 15, 2017, Thurston County Superior Court ruled on parts of the Clean Air Rule. As we continue to understand the court's decision, we are suspending the rule's compliance requirements and the verification program. We will maintain all current verifier application materials. We'll continue to update our website as the legal process unfolds.
Businesses covered by the Clean Air Rule need to have their compliance and greenhouse gas reports verified. Verification needs to be done by an approved third party. We will train, approve, and provide a list of third party verifiers. Verifiers are responsible for submitting verification reports to Ecology.
