Rule 2305 – WAIRE Program is an indirect source rule that regulates warehouse facilities to reduce emissions from the goods movement industry. Rule 316 establishes fees to fund Rule 2305 compliance activities. Rule 2305 applies to warehouses with at least 100,000 square feet of indoor floor space in a single building.

Compliance and Reporting

The WAIRE Program is a menu-based point system that requires warehouse operators to earn WAIRE Points by completing actions off the WAIRE Menu, by implementing an approved Custom WAIRE Plan, or by paying a mitigation fee every year.

Warehouse facility owners will be required to submit an informational report on their buildings (Warehouse Operations Notification), and warehouse operators will also be required to submit reports about facility operations and compliance approaches (Initial Site Information Report and Annual WAIRE Report).
