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.
