Welcome to WCI CITSS

The Compliance Instrument Tracking System Service (CITSS) is a management and tracking system for accounts and compliance instruments issued through participating Western Climate Initiative cap-and-trade programs. CITSS is administered by the Western Climate Initiative, Inc. (WCI, Inc.). CITSS tracks compliance instruments (emissions allowances and offsets) from the point of issuance by jurisdictional governments, to ownership, transfer by regulated greenhouse gas emitters and other voluntary or general market participants, and to final compliance retirement.

CITSS is designed to simplify the participation in the cap-and-trade program for all program participants, jurisdiction staff, and any contractors involved in implementing cap-and-trade programs within participating jurisdictions.
