Welcome to Refrigerant Registration and Reporting System (R3)

Welcome to the Refrigerant Registration and Reporting System (R3). The R3 is a web-based tool for implementing the registration, reporting, and fee payment provisions of ARB's Refrigerant Management Program (RMP). In addition, the R3 offers the public a means to view select preformatted reports of refrigerant emissions. The R3 can be conveniently accessed on any computer with an internet connection.

The RMP is California's regulation for stationary, non-residential refrigeration systems using more than 50 pounds of a high global warming potential (high-GWP) refrigerant. The RMP seeks to reduce emissions of high-GWP refrigerants from leaking refrigeration equipment and the installation and servicing of refrigeration and air-conditioning appliances.

At the top of this page are links to the general ARB home web page and the home page of the RMP. Below that, on the red tab bar are links to preformatted reports and forms, important contacts for the RMP, and answers to frequently asked questions.
