hdghg -- Small Fleet Registration Deadline for Tractor-Trailer Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Regulation Extended

Posted: 05 Jun 2012 14:11:01
The California Air Resources Board has issued Advisory Mail-Out
MSC# 12-09 to notify stakeholders that the registration deadline
for the Small Fleet Compliance Plan has been extended to
September 1, 2012.  This extension will provide certain fleets
that have not already registered to use a compliance option under
the regulation to participate in the extended phase-in option of
the Small Fleet Compliance Plan that begins in 2013. 

Background

The Tractor-Trailer Greenhouse Gas Regulation (regulation)
applies to 53-foot or longer dry van or refrigerated van trailers
(box-type trailers) and the tractors that pull them on California
highways.  The regulation requires tractor-trailers operating in
California to use tractors and box-type trailers that utilize
certain aerodynamic equipment and low rolling resistance tires,
as verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay
program, to meet specified fuel efficiency improvements.

The regulation establishes specific compliance deadlines for
trailers based on fleet size and model year.  Specifically, small
fleets (with 20 or fewer trailers) may either:  
	Bring all their pre-2011 model year trailers into compliance by
January 1, 2013, or
	Phase-in compliance over several years, between 2013 and 2016,
if they register by the registration deadline.  That deadline has
been extended from July 1, 2012 to September 1, 2012.
