California Environmental Technology Certification Program
Recognized Certification for Environmental Technologies
that prevent, treat or clean up pollution in the air, water, or land.
From 1994 to 2002, the California Environmental Technology Certification Program (CalCert) was an independent, recognized scientific and engineering evaluation of environmental performance. Technology manufacturers and developers defined their performance claims and submitted supporting data to Cal/EPA. Staff reviewed the information, and when necessary, required additional testing to verify claims. The technologies, equipment, and products that are were proven received certification verifying their performance claims. The program was voluntary and self-supporting, which meant participating companies paid the cost of evaluating and certifying claims.
CalCert recognition gave products, processes, and equipment greater visibility in the market and offered credibility to those technologies proven to have an environmental benefit.
Due to the current budget shortfall for the State of California, and associated budget uncertainty, Cal/EPA is not accepting any new applications into the Environmental Technology Certification Program.
