The California Air Resources Board’s Truck and Bus Regulation retrofit deadline is approaching. The process of ordering and installing can take a few months, so you should plan now to meet the January 1st compliance deadline and avoid possible penalties. Starting now will help you figure out which options make the most sense for your business, and which funding options might be available.
Option 1 -Follow the compliance schedule by engine model year that requires 1996 – 2006 model engines to be retrofit with a diesel particulate matter filter by January 1, 2014, or
Option 2 -Use a phase-in option that requires 90% of vehicles in your fleet to be retrofit with a diesel particulate filter by January 1, 2014. (Note: this option requires annual reporting to ARB)
FleetServ understands the California Air Resources Board is asking a lot. We do not want to see you become subject to possible fines due to manufacturer delays. The Air Resources Board is offering an extension to fleet owners who order retrofits by September 1st and whose retrofits might not be completed by the January 1st deadline due to manufacturer delays.
