onrdiesel -- Additional training opportunity for Agricultural Vehicle Provision of the Truck and Bus Regulation

Posted: 07 Apr 2011 11:31:24
California Air Resources Board has a training class scheduled for
April 11, 2011 to inform fleet owners how to comply and take
advantage of the agricultural vehicle provisions of the Truck and
Bus regulation. The regulation includes a provision that allows
many agricultural fleets to delay clean-up requirements until
2017 or 2023, dependent on qualifying use and miles driven.
Fleets utilizing the agricultural provision must report their
vehicles by April 29, 2011 and then annually by January 31.

The training will provide an overview of the rule, explain what
vehicles qualify for the agricultural vehicle extension, and
demonstrate how agricultural fleets may report using the Truck
Regulations Upload and Compliance Reporting System (TRUCRS). The
training class will be held April 11, 2011 from 1:00 PM to 3:30
PM at:

San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD)
1990 East Gettysburg Avenue
Fresno, CA 93726

The seminar will be concurrently broadcasted to the following

SJVAPCD Modesto Office
4800 Enterprise Way
Modesto, CA 95356

SJVAPCD Bakersfield Office
34946 Flyover Court
Bakersfield, CA 93308

On December 11, 2008, the Board approved for adoption the Truck
and Bus regulation to control emissions from nearly all existing
diesel powered heavy-duty trucks and buses operating in
California.  The regulation became effective under California law
on January 8, 2010. The regulation applies to diesel fueled
trucks and buses with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)
greater than 14,000 pounds that are privately owned, federally
owned, and to publicly and privately owned school buses.  Local
and state government owned diesel fueled trucks and buses are
already subject to other ARB regulations. Reducing emissions from
in-use trucks and buses is necessary to meet federally imposed
clean air standards and to reduce the adverse health effects from
truck and bus pollution.

On December 17, 2010, the staff recommended amendments, which are
presently pending adoption, that would delay the initial
requirement to install particulate matter (PM) retrofit filters
by one year to January 1, 2012 and extend the time before a
vehicle equipped with a PM filter would have to have an engine
that meets 2010 model year emission standards.  The amendments
would also defer engine replacements for vehicles without PM
filters two years until January 1, 2015.  Prior to 2020,
replacements would be limited to 20 year old or older trucks that
are not equipped with PM filters.  By January 1, 2023, most
vehicles would still need to be equipped with an engine meeting
2010 model year emission standards.
