Background: The CHC regulation was adopted in November 2007 and
became effective in January 2009.  Commercial harbor craft
includes crew and supply vessels, commercial fishing vessels,
ferries,excursion vessels, pilot boats, tow boats, tug boats,
barges,dredges, and work boats.  The CHC regulation requires
existing Tier 1 and earlier auxiliary and propulsion engines on
in-use ferries, excursion vessels, tugboats, towboats, crew and
supply vessels, barges, and dredges to meet United States
Environmental Protection Agency Tier 2 or Tier 3 marine engine
standards in effect at the time compliance is required.  This
regulation is part of ARB’s ongoing effort to reduce diesel
particulate matter in communities located near ports.  Additional
information on the regulation is available at the following
