Gear Up, Breathe Easy CARB is actively enforcing heavy-duty diesel vehicle regulations in support of California™s clean air goals. Enforcement of clean diesel vehicle rules also provides a level playing ˜eld for those who have already done their part and are in compliance. This booklet provides basic information and resources to help take the guesswork out of California™s clean truck and bus requirements. If your vehicle does not meet state clean air laws, you could be subject to ˜nes or temporarily lose the ability to operate in California. Disclaimer While this booklet is intended to assist vehicle owners with their compliance efforts, it is the sole responsibility of ˚eets to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations.

4Truck & Bus Regulation On-road diesel vehicles with a GVWR that is 14,001+ lbs. must reduce exhaust emissions by meeting particulate matter (PM) ˜lter requirements and upgrading to newer engines. Vehicles with 2010 engine model year (EMY) or newer are fully compliant. Heavier Vehicles with a GVWR greater than 26,000 lbs. must upgrade as shown in the table. Reporting is optional when exclusively using the Engine Model Year schedule for heavier vehicles below. EMY Schedule for Heavier Vehicles (>26,000 lbs.

7Drayage Trucks Diesel-fueled trucks transporting cargo destined for or coming from California™s ports and intermodal rail yards (including bobtails and transporting chassis) must be registered in the statewide Drayage Truck Registry prior to entry. Drayage ˚eets must comply with requirements by operating only vehicles with 2007 MY engines or newer. Drayage Compliance Schedule (GVWR 26,001 lbs. or more) Truck Engine Model Year Emission Requirements 2006 and older Not allowed 2007-2009 Compliant through 2022 2010 and newer Fully compliant By January 1, 2023, all class 7 and 8 diesel-fueled drayage trucks must have 2010 or newer engines.

8Transport Refrigeration Units (Reefers) All transport refrigeration units (TRU) and TRU generator sets that operate in California must meet the in-use performance standards (see compliance table below). Every California-based TRU and TRU generator set must be registered in Air Resources Board Equipment Registration (ARBER) and be labeled with a CARB Identi˜cation Number. All terminals that are located in California where TRUs are based must submit operator reports to CARB at .TRU and TRU Generator Set Compliance Schedule Engine Model Year Low-Emission TRU (50% PM Reduction) Ultra-Low-Emission TRU (85% PM Reduction) 2001 or older December 31, 2009 December 31, 2015 2002 December 31, 2009 December 31, 2016 2003 December 31, 2010 December 31, 2017 2004 (<25 hp) December 31, 2011 December 31, 2018 2004 (>25 hp) Not Applicable December 31, 2011 2005 and newer Not Applicable December 31 st of the model year plus 7 years Fleets may comply by using Alternative Technologies (e.g. hybrid- electric TRUs or TRUs equipped with electric standby) or retro˜tting with a veri˜ed diesel particulate ˜lter. For guidance on using electric standby and hybrid-electric TRUs as an Alternative Technology compliance option, visit electricstandby_ets.pdf .All businesses that hire carriers (e.g. brokers, shippers and receivers) must only use carriers that supply compliant TRUs.

9Tractors & Box-type Trailers The Tractor-Trailer Greenhouse Gas Regulation applies to 53-foot or longer box-type trailers and 2013 MY or older heavy-duty tractors that pull these trailers. Low-Rolling Resistance Tire Requirements* Tractors Trailers 2013 and older MY Required Required 2014 and newer MY N/A Required * Must be SmartWayŽ-certi˜ed. Tractor Requirements All 2011 through 2013 MY sleeper-cab tractors must be SmartWayŽ designated models. 2014 MY or newer tractors are covered by a federal regulation and are exempt from this rule. Trailer Aerodynamic Requirements All tr ailers must be either SmartWayŽ- certi˜ed or aerodynamically retro˜tted to a minimum standard. Delays and ExemptionsCertain trucks subject to the Transportation Refrigeration Unit (TRU) rule can phase in tire and aerodynamic requirements from 2018 to 2020. This only applies to TRUs with 2003 to 2009 MY reefer trailers equipped with 2003 or newer TRU engines. Fleets must register to take advantage of short haul, local haul or storage trailer exemptions, and to apply for temporary use passes.

10Other Diesel Programs CARB continues to actively enforce long-standing requirements for diesel vehicles including: Idling LimitsIdling Limits restrict diesel vehicles from idling more than ˜ve minutes. Idling in school zones is not allowed, with limited exceptions. Emission Control Labels Emission Control Labels must be af˜xed to engines of all commercial heavy-duty diesel vehicles, and must be legible as proof the engine, at minimum, meets U.S. federal emissions standards for the engine model year. Periodic Smoke Inspection Program The Periodic Smoke Inspection Program requires owners of California-based ˚eets of two or more diesel vehicles to perform annual smoke opacity tests and to keep records for at least two years for each vehicle. The requirement does not apply to cars or trucks that must undergo a Smog Check. Heavy-Duty Vehicle Inspection Program The Heavy-Duty Vehicle Inspection Program uses random roadside inspections to verify that diesel engines do not smoke excessively and are tamper-free. Public Fleets and OthersVehicles with a GVWR of 14,001+ lbs. that are owned by state and local government ˚eets, private utilities, and solid waste collection vehicles, must already have particulate matter (PM) ˜lters (retro˜t or originally equipped).
