Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Fugitive emissions rules in California vary from air district to air district. Each local district has formulated its own fugitive emissions rule and codified it in the district's attainment plan. See the state section AIR (REGULATORY OVERVIEW) for the jurisdictional boundaries of each district, and contact the appropriate local district to determine what fugitive emissions standards a particular facility is required to meet.

Administration and enforcement. California's air quality management rules are administered through county Air Pollution Control Districts (APCDs) or regional Air Quality Management Districts (AQMDs). As a result, there are 35 different air quality agencies in California, each with the responsibility of administering and enforcing fugitive emissions requirements within their jurisdictions. Contact CARB or see the state section ADDRESSES & CONTACTS for the location of the appropriate local air district office.
