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
For more information about this notice please go to: 

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

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.
