This page last reviewed August 2nd, 2013.
In April 2013, the ARB reached a settlement with Fiat Powertrain Technologies that included a $1,000 penalty to the California Air Pollution Control Fund for introducing into California mislabeled Stationary Source engines in violation of Title 13, California Code of Regulations and ARB’s Executive Order.
On January 24, 2012, ARB representatives discovered that Fiat Powertrains Technologies had introduced mislabeled Stationary Source Engines. An investigation by ARB in March 2012 showed that Fiat Powertrain Technologies had indeed shipped mislabeled engines to California. However, during the investigation, FPT Industrial provided documentation showing the mislabeled engines were limited to two (2) that were shipped to California. FPT Industrial provided copies of the correct labels and written documentation received November 28, 2012. The outcome of the investigation revealed that Fiat Powertrain Technologies’ actions violated Section 43016 of the H&SC and section 2424 of Title 13, California Code of Regulations. The case settled in April 2013, for One Thousand Dollars ($1,000).
