Independent third-party verification improves data reliability and provides the necessary assurances that people doing business in Oregon are accurately calculating emissions and correctly meeting DEQ reporting requirements.
DEQ is currently developing the process to approve verifiers who can provide their services in Oregon. DEQ plans to provide training to potential verifiers to ensure that they are knowledgeable about Oregon’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting and Clean Fuels Program regulations in the spring of 2021. A list of approved verifiers will be posted once it becomes available so entities that are subject to this requirement can know who is eligible to contract with for verification services.
Oregon third party verification requirements apply to 2021 calendar year data submitted beginning in the spring of 2022.
