tru -- CARB's TRU (reefer) Rule Amendments Effective March 7, 2011 Posted: 08 Mar 2011 08:30:12
March 7, 2011, California’s Office of Administrative Law (OAL) approved the "TRU” rulemaking, that was adopted by the California Air Resources Board on November 18, 2010. This rulemaking was filed with the Secretary of State and due to the request for an early effective date, the regulatory action became effective March 7, 2011. Enforcement of the in-use performance standards for model year 2003 TRU engines begins March 31, 2011. For more information please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/regact/2010/tru2010/tru2010.htm In 2004, the Air Resources Board (ARB) adopted an Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) for transport refrigeration units (TRU). In March 2005, ARB requested the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to grant authorization to ARB to adopt and enforce the TRU ATCM pursuant to the Clean Air Act. USEPA granted California authorization on January 16, 2009. ARB amended section 2477 of title13 of the California Code of Regulations to (1) allow the owners of model year 2003 TRU in the 25 hp and greater category and model year 2003 TRU and 2004 TRU in the less than 25 hp category to use the low-emission TRU in-use standard (enforcement begins March 31, 2011), (2) clarify that the operational life of flexibility engines installed before the effective date of these amendments is seven years from the year of engine manufacture, and (3) add new reporting requirements for TRU original equipment manufacturers. OAL approved this regulatory action pursuant to section 11349.3 of the Government Code.
