NOTE: The following non-mandatory template is provided as a convenient tool for entities applying for CCS Permanence Certification. CARB staff expects that due to the nature of the information required, most applicants using this template will find it easier to enter “See Attachment/Appendix (x)” in the appropriate section and attach the associated supporting documents in a zip file in the AFP Correspondence. This practice is expected and encouraged, as it will help CARB staff facilitate review of the application information.
The California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Low Carbon Fuel Standard regulation, which appears at sections 95480 to 95503 of title 17, California Code of Regulations, is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the life cycle of transportation fuels used in California. CARB staff has prepared this document to describe the regulatory requirements in a user-friendly format. Unlike the regulation itself, this document does not have the force of law. It is not intended to and cannot establish new mandatory requirements beyond those that are already in the LCFS Regulation, nor can it supplant, replace or amend any of the legal requirements of the regulation. Conversely, any omission or truncation of regulatory requirements does not relieve entities of their legal obligation to fully comply with all requirements of the regulation.
