Annual Emission Reporting
The South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD) Annual Emissions Reporting (AER) program was developed to track emissions of air contaminants from permitted facilities. Fees for emissions of air contaminants are assessed based on the reported data. These fees help to cover the costs of evaluating, planning, inspecting, and monitoring air quality efforts. Under this program, those who emit more, pay more toward air pollution control efforts – and at the same time are given an incentive to reduce emissions.
