onrdiesel -- One Year Particulate Matter Filter Extension for Cranes

Posted: 11 Oct 2012 15:06:55
The Air Resources Board (ARB) has issued a regulatory mail out
notice that approves a one year extension (for calendar year
2013) from the particulate matter (PM) filter requirements for
certain types of cranes that are subject to the Truck and Bus
regulation (Section 2025). ARB staff is working with crane
operators, crane manufacturers, and other organizations to
investigate and understand safety and certification concerns and
how best to determine which PM filter retrofits can be installed.
 The extension will allow additional time to collect necessary
data that can be used to determine how safety and feasibility
concerns should be addressed for cranes.  For more detailed
information, including extension applicability, please see the
mail out notice at: 
For other information about this regulation, other diesel engine
regulations, or training programs, please contact an ARB diesel
representative at 866-6DIESEL (866-634-3735) or visit the Truck
Stop website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/truckstop  

On December 11, 2008, the Air Resources Board (ARB or 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
requires diesel trucks and buses that operate in California to be
upgraded to reduce emissions. Heavier trucks must be retrofitted
with PM filters beginning January 1, 2012, and older trucks must
be replaced starting January 1, 2015. By January 1, 2023, nearly
all trucks and buses will need to have 2010 model year engines or

The regulation applies to nearly all privately and federally
owned diesel fueled trucks and buses and to privately and
publicly owned school buses with a gross vehicle weight rating
(GVWR) greater than 14,000 pounds.  This regulation does not
apply to drayage trucks that transport marine containers.  Small
fleets with three or fewer diesel trucks can delay compliance for
their heavier trucks by reporting.  Fleet owners can also report
and take advantage of other provisions that delay compliance for
their heavier trucks.  Privately and publicly owned school buses
have different requirements.
