California Air Resource Board (CARB) Testing

With the beauty of California and to support the health of Californians, California wants to keep its skies clear and free of air pollution.  To that end, California established the state regulatory agency known as the California Air Resource Board (CARB) in 1967.  The California Air Resource Board (CARB) was created as a department within California’s Environmental Protection Agency by combining the Bureau of Air Sanitation with the Motor Vehicle Pollution Control Board.

The California Air Resource Board  CARB’s goals include attaining and maintaining healthy air quality, protecting the public from exposure to toxic air contaminants, and providing innovative approaches for complying with air pollution rules and regulations. In doing so, they have set standards and the need for certification of products in various industries such as wood, adhesives, petroleum, and the automotive industries. In the automotive industry, it regulates the standards for the zero-emissions vehicle or ZEV.  In the Oil Industry, it regulates the low-fuel carbon standard. TO comply with many of its standards, companies may have to perform CARB certification testing.
