WAIRE FAQs
What is the WAIRE Program?

The Warehouse Actions and Investments to Reduce Emissions (WAIRE) Program aims to reduce nitrogen oxide and diesel emissions associated with warehouses to meet federal standards and improve public health. This program is also known as the “Indirect Source Rule,” “ISR,” or “Rule 2305.”

Who must comply?

Operators of warehouses of at least 100,000 square feet.

Where does it apply?

This rule applies to warehouses within the SCAQMD jurisdiction, including large areas of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.

When is this being implemented?

The requirements will be phased in over time, with the compliance period for warehouses larger than 250,000 square feet starting on Jan. 1, 2022. Smaller warehouses (between 100,000 square feet and 249,999 square feet) will be phased in between 2023 and 2024.

How can warehouse operators maintain compliance?

Warehouse operators must earn a specific number of WAIRE points yearly or pay a mitigation fee to offset the number of truck trips made to and from the warehouse yearly, including all outside carriers and over-the-road drivers making a trip to a site, regardless of whether it is an “in-house” fleet.

Companies can earn points to offset the obligation through:

  • Completing any combination of actions in the WAIRE menu
  • Completing actions in a site-specific custom WAIRE plan
  • Paying a mitigation fee of $1,000 per point
