The U.S. Forest forms are provided to assist in submitting the information required by the regulation and applicable Compliance Offset Protocol. When an OPO/APD uses Offset Project Data Report forms provided by ARB to submit this information, the OPO/APD must fill out both the Initial and Annual forms for the first report reporting period. All subsequent reporting periods require only the Annual form. The U.S. Forest reporting forms below were designed for the October 20, 2011 and November 14, 2014 protocols. U.S. Forest reporting forms for the June 25, 2015 protocol are not yet available.
