arbcombo -- Notice to Diesel Particulate Matter Filter Manufacturers and Installers Posted: 24 Dec 2012 13:26:49
The Air Resources Board (ARB) has sent a notice to all diesel particulate matter (PM) filter manufacturers and installers to remind them that motorhomes used exclusively for personal use are exempt from the diesel exhaust cleanup requirements of the Statewide Truck and Bus regulation, title 13, California Code of Regulations, section 2025. This notice was sent to help alleviate concerns from motorhome owners who inadvertently received a letter from ARB indicating they may be required to take action by January 1, 2013 to comply with the regulation. While exempt from the regulation, the mailing list failed to exclude personal use motorhome owners. This unfortunately caused some confusion regarding compliance requirements. For more information about this notice please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/onrdiesel/documents/NoticetoInstallers.pdf For other information about diesel vehicle 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/msprog/truckstop/truckstop.htm Background ARB has adopted a number of regulations that require diesel engine owners to take steps to reduce their engine emissions. Nearly all trucks and buses with a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating greater than 14,000 pounds that operate in California are required to be upgraded to reduce exhaust emissions between now and 2023. To comply with these requirements, fleet owners can upgrade exiting engines by installing verified diesel PM filters, or by upgrading to cleaner engines or vehicles. These regulations are part of the State’s plan to meet federal ambient air quality standards and to protect public health.
