CARB's New Southern California Headquarters
The Mary D. Nichols Campus
As the state’s leading center for assessing the environmental impacts of motor vehicles and other mobile equipment, CARB’s new laboratory will now take its place as one of the premier vehicle emissions testing facilities in the world. The new lab will accommodate testing for passenger cars, motorcycles, trucks and buses, lawn and garden equipment, small off-road engines, and marine engines.

California has made significant progress to reduce our exposure to harmful air pollutants, the result of regulations and programs based on sound science. These achievements reflect a collective and bipartisan effort over the past half century that involves the Legislature, air districts, regulated industries and the public. We have come a long way but many in our state still breathe unhealthful air, and childhood asthma rates are above the national average.
There is far more work to be done. CARB stands ready as it enters its next 50 years to build on this strong environmental legacy and ensure that all Californians will breathe clean air.
