The conference call meetings will be held at: 10:00 AM Pacific on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, and at 10:00 AM Pacific on Tuesday, March 19, 2013. The meetings will be conducted via telephone only, and can be accessed by calling: Telephone number within the U. S.: 888-324-7176 Telephone number outside the U.

ARB staff is evaluating the current certification procedure and plans to propose amendments for the Board's consideration in late 2013. These amendments will focus on the chassis dynamometer testing portion of the overall certification process, with the goal of ensuring the revised test procedures better-apply to a wide range of vehicle types and vocations, and account for greenhouse gases in addition to criteria pollutants.
