arbcombo -- Public Workshop to Discuss Proposed Amendments to the Verification Procedure Posted: 23 Dec 2011 16:01:06
Draft Regulatory Language for the January Workshop on Proposed Amendments to the Verification Procedure is Now Available. California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) staff has posted draft regulatory language for the January 19, 2012 workshop 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). It is expected that these amendments will be considered by the Board at its May 2012 meeting. The draft regulatory language can be found on the Verification Procedure webpage at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/verdev/in-use/draft-reg-language-may2012-v42.pdf Along with minor changes and clarifications, the proposed revisions to the Verification Procedure include the following: • Additional changes to the in-use compliance testing requirements, including specifying when testing is required and providing a new in-field testing option • New 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 revised warranty reporting requirements • Changes to the backpressure monitoring requirements for filter-based DECS For more information about the January 19th 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: Mr. 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 ARB’s in-use fleet rules must be verified under the Verification Procedure.
