At-Berth Regulation Advisories and Forms
New compliance requirements for the At Berth Regulation are in effect beginning on January 1, 2023. Staff released visit reporting templates for vessels, terminals and CARB approved emission control strategy (CAECS) operators to assist with the new reporting requirements.
The 2017 Advisory informs affected fleets and terminal operators as to how CARB will proceed with enforcement of the 2007 At-Berth Regulation (17 CCR section 93118.3) beginning January 1, 2017. As specified in the Advisory, CARB offers six possible scenarios, which may apply on a case-by-case basis, with the objective of providing flexibility to fleets that have equipped their vessels to use shore power or contracted to use an alternative control technology to comply with the 2007 At-Berth Regulation.
The visit information spreadsheet, advisory visit information spreadsheet, emergency event form, and delayed visit form can all be used to assist fleets with their recordkeeping requirements. The spreadsheet can also be used as the input to the optional compliance tool.

Reduced Onboard Power Generation (ROPG) Option
Standardized forms are not available for the submittal of the Annual Statement of Compliance. When submitting the annual statement under the ROPG Option, fleets need to ensure that they include all the information specified in Section 93118.3(g)(1)(A)(2) on page 28 of the At-Berth Regulation. Alternatively, fleets can use the optional compliance tool to generate the compliance statements based on their visit information.
Staff developed the optional compliance tool to assist fleets in complying with the reporting requirements for the ROPG Option. Contact Jonathan Foster at (916) 327-1512 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
