Regulation 13 Rule 1

Learn about the Air District's development process for Regulation 13, Rule 1, which would address significant leaks and releases of methane in the Bay Area.

Find out about the status and anticipated timeline of the rule development process. Information on hearings, workshops, and other events is provided below, along with supporting documents and materials.

UPDATE: The workshops originally scheduled for April 18 and April 23, 2018 are being postponed. New workshop dates will be announced as soon as they are finalized.

The Air District is developing a new regulation to address significant releases of methane in the Bay Area. Regulation 13, Rule 1: Significant Methane Releases would be the Air District’s first rule focused on regulating methane, a powerful greenhouse gas (GHG). This regulation is the first step in implementing the Air District’s Basin-Wide Methane Strategy (as outlined in the 2017 Clean Air Plan), and is a significant component of the Air District’s climate protection program. Rule 13-1 would include monitoring and repair provisions whenever a significant methane release occurs.
