Annual Emissions Reporting Support
The South Coast Air Quality Management District's (AQMD’s) Annual Emission Reporting (AER) program was developed to track emissions of air contaminants from permitted facilities. Emission fees are also assessed based on reported data. The data collected by AER is used to update the comprehensive emissions inventory for the AQMD, which includes Orange County, the non-desert portions of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties, and the Riverside county areas west of the Palo Verde Valley.
This annual emissions inventory of pollutants and source categories is essential to effectively design and evaluate clean air strategies to comply with state and federal public health standards.
