Upcoming live trainings 2023 

Third Party Verification Kickoff Training

Attendance is recommended for all DEQ-approved verifiers who plan to perform services in Oregon in 2023. Both sessions will cover the same material, and there will be time to ask questions of DEQ staff. Training slides will be posted to the Resources section of this page once the training concludes. Please join the trainings using the following Zoom links: 
  • Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. PT: Join via Zoom  
  • Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. PT: Join via Zoom 

Note for 2023 verification of 2022 data 

The Clean Fuels Program regulations in Division 253 were updated through a rulemaking in late 2022 and are effective Jan. 1, 2023. This version is what is now found on the Secretary of State's website. DEQ preserved a copy of the version that was in effect for 2022 so verifiers have access to those regulations while completing verification in 2023 on 2022 data.
