How do I become a verifier?

To become a verifier for the GHG Reporting Program, you will need to be accredited by the California Air Resources Board's MRR Program or be associated with a verification body that is accredited by the ANSI National Accreditation Board's GHG Validation and Verification Body accreditation program in the areas for which you intend to perform verification. You will also need to take and pass qualification exams for Oregon qualification.
