Wood burning is a major source of particulate matter air pollution in the Bay Area during the winter months. The Air District’s Wood Smoke Regulation prohibits wood burning when air quality is forecast to be unhealthy, places restrictions on visible emissions, and prohibits the burning of garbage, plastics, and other unsuitable materials.

Registration for Portable Equipment

Statewide Portable Equipment Registration Program

On September 17, 1997, The California Office of Administrative Law approved the Regulation to Establish a Statewide Portable Equipment Registration Program. The California Air Resources Board (ARB) accepts applications for registration of equipment under this program.

Permits issued under this program must be honored by all Air Districts throughout California. Operators of permitted portable sources are subject to notification requirements to the host Air District, upon relocation to the Air District's jurisdiction.

Application forms can be downloaded through the ARB's web site for the Statewide Portable Equipment Registration Program.
