Chief, Emissions Compliance, Automotive Regulations and Science (ECARS) Division

California Air Resources Board

Annette Hebert has a degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Louisiana and joined ARB in 1989. As a Division Chief in the Mobile Source program for CARB since 2006, Ms. Hebert has been instrumental in modernizing the certification program, enhancing the light duty and heavy-duty in-use programs, ensuring the success of our emission warranty programs, and identifying and correcting performance gaps in vehicle technology such as improvements in the application of selective catalytic reduction through rigorous certification and field assessment activities.

Ms. Hebert also has oversight of the State of California’s Advanced Clean Cars (ACC) Program. The ACC includes the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) program which is aimed at reducing criteria pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions from the light duty fleet, and the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) mandate which is aimed at promoting the transformation of the vehicle fleet through the introduction of advanced vehicle technology.

She also directs all activities of the Haagen-Smit Laboratory (HSL) in El Monte California where the testing of light duty vehicles, motorcycles, small off road engines, and other products are evaluated for their contribution to air pollution impacts through measuring their exhaust, evaporative and speciated chemical emissions.
