HARP Update

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has released an updated California Emission Inventory Development and Reporting System (CEIDARS) Utility Database for the Hot Spots Analysis and Reporting Program (HARP) Emission Inventory Module (EIM). The information in the CEIDARS Utility Database is used to assist with data entry and quality assurance. The following table has been updated:

  • POLLUTANT - Pollutant Information

The pollutant table now incorporates the new pollutants from the Emission Inventory Criteria and Guidelines amendments that became effective on March 21, 2022. 

To get the new CEIDARS Utility Database, select “Help > Check for Updates” feature in the main menu of the program. This feature will automatically download and update the CEIDARS Utility Database. Restart the HARP EIM and then open your project file. When your project opens, you will then be prompted to use the latest CEIDARS Utility Database. Select "Yes" to begin using the new CEIDARS Utility Database.

If you have questions regarding the updates made to the pollutant table in the CEIDARS Utility Database, please email emission inventory staff at eibweb@arb.ca.gov.
