arbcombo -- Revised Announcement - Public Workshop to Discuss Proposed Amendments to the Verification Procedure Posted: 20 Dec 2011 10:19:06
The Air Resources Board invites you to attend a public workshop on January 19, 2012 to discuss proposed amendments to the Verification Procedure, Warranty, and In-Use Compliance Requirements for In-Use Strategies to Control Emissions from Diesel Engines (Verification Procedure) that will be presented to the Board in May 2012. At the workshop, staff will discuss the proposed amendments to the Verification Procedure which include the following: Additional changes to the in-use compliance testing requirements including when testing is required and the adoption of an in-field testing option Recall provisions Changes to the pre-installation compatibility assessment provisions including additional requirements for installers of verified DECS Clarification of the definition of a warrantable event and warranty reporting requirements Changes to the backpressure monitoring requirements for filter-based DECS Other changes and clarifications The workshop will be held at the following time and place: Date: Thursday, January 19, 2012 Time: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) Location: Air Resources Board Auditorium Annex 4 9528 Telstar Avenue El Monte, California 91731 For more information about the workshop, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/mailouts/msc1136/msc1136.pdf For more information about the Verification Program, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/verdev/verdev.htm If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Dean Bloudoff, Air Resources Engineer, at (916) 322-8987, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Background: The Verification Procedure is used by staff to evaluate diesel emission control strategies (DECS) to determine their suitability for use by regulated fleets. Under the guidance of the Verification Procedure, DECS manufacturers perform emissions, durability, and field testing to quantify emissions reductions and validate the durability of their retrofit strategies. Manufacturers of verified DECS are required to conduct in-use testing using devices that have been in operation for a prescribed period of time once a predetermined sales threshold has been reached. Any DECS used to satisfy the requirements of ARBs in-use fleet rules must be verified under the Verification Procedure.
