cargo -- Regulatory Advisory to Clarify When the Equipment Model Year May Be Used for Determining Compliance Date Posted: 19 Jun 2013 10:24:47
This advisory provides clarification on when the equipment model year may be used for determining the compliance date for cargo handling equipment at California ports and intermodal rail yards. Advisory Number 13-390: Enforcement of the Mobile Cargo Handling Equipment Regulation at Ports and Intermodal Rail Yards http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/cargo/advisories.htm The September 2011 amendments to the Regulation for Mobile Cargo Handling Equipment at Ports and Intermodal Rail Yards (CHE regulation) added a footnote to Tables 1 and 2, of section (e)(2)(B), allows the use of either the equipment model year or the engine model year, whichever is newer, for determining the compliance date for in-use yard trucks. However, this provision is only available for yard trucks with compliance dates of December 31, 2012, and later. Yard trucks with compliance dates prior to October 14, 2012 – the effective date of the amendment – must use the engine model year for determining the compliance date for the particular piece of equipment.

Background: The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) approved the original CHE regulation for adoption on December 8, 2005, and the regulation became effective on December 31, 2006. The Board approved amendments to the CHE regulation for adoption on September 22, 2011. ARB received authorization to enforce the originally adopted regulation from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) effective on November 28, 2011. After receiving authorization from U.S. EPA to enforce the regulation, ARB notified the regulated community that we would begin enforcement on August 1, 2012. Subsequently, the CHE regulation amendments became effective on October 14, 2012.
