Requirements for California Compliance
For each of your warehouses, you are required to do the following daily tasks in order to be compliant:
  1. Class: Indicate the vehicle class 2B-7 or 8
  2. Fuel Type: Indicate the vehicle fuel type – diesel, gasoline, or one of the low or no-emission fuels
  3. ID: Include the entire 16-digit VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
  4. Time-Stamp: Mark the exact date and time of the vehicle on entrance or exit
  5. Count Trips: Inbound and outbound entrance or exit for all Class 2B-7 or Class 8 fuel types
  6. Count Visits: Inbound and outbound entrance or exit for only low or no-emission fuel types.
At the end of the year, your company must submit the collected data to California for review. See below for: Creating a WAIRE Account with South Coast AQMD.
WAIRE will be phased in over time based on size (see below). Once a phase is initiated, the rule requirements increase over a three-year period. *Warehouse Operations Notification is the only required reporting obligation for warehouse owners under Rule 2305 **Or within 14 days of operator change or 30 days after renovation that changes the square footage *** If the warehouse operator vacates the warehouse during the compliance period the AWR is due the date the operator leaves

Warehouse operators may be exempt from parts of the rule if:

  1. Size: They operate <50,000 square feet for warehousing activities.
  2. Points: If the number of points required is <10; or
  3. Circumstances: If the WAIRE menu action chosen underperforms due to circumstances beyond the operator’s control, such as a manufacturer defect.
If an operator chooses to pay a mitigation fee, the funds will be used to provide incentivizes for near-zero and zero-emission trucks and zero-emission charging and fueling infrastructure in communities near the warehouse(s) that paid the fee.
The WAIRE program is required in the Following California Counties and Areas:
  • Los Angeles County
  • Riverside County
  • Orange County
  • Salton Sea Basin
  • Mojave Desert Basin (partial)
According to California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), the regulatory agency responsible for WAIRE, in 1977, the California Legislature created the region by “merging the air pollution control districts of Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties, and all of Orange County. Within Riverside County, the AQMD also has jurisdiction over the Salton Sea Air Basin and a portion of the Mojave Desert Air Basin. The South Coast Air Basin covers an area of 6,745 square miles with a population of 14.6 million, while the larger South Coast district boundary includes 10,743 square miles and a population of 15 million.” The maps below highlight these regions and provide more visual information.
