harborcraft -- Revised Commercial Harbor Craft Brochure Posted: 13 Jan 2014 14:54:18
The brochure, Commercial Harbor Craft Ė What Owners/Operators Need to Know, has been revised and is now available. The updated brochure is part of the Heavy-Duty Diesel Information Series and includes the regulatory amendments adopted in 2010. The brochure can be downloaded from the Commercial Harbor Craft (CHC) website at the following link: http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/marinevess/harborcraft/documents/chcpamphlet01132014.pdf The 2010 amendments to the CHC Regulation made diesel-fueled engines on crew and supply vessels and barges and dredges subject to the in-use engine requirements of the regulation. Crew and supply vessels have been included because the information available to ARB staff indicated that they have similar or greater emissions than vessel categories already subject to the in-use engine requirements. Barges and dredges have been included to amend a situation where this class of vessels was subject to two different statewide regulations. Other amendments were adopted to clarify requirements and to address issues that arose during the initial implementation of the 2007 CHC regulation. A more detailed explanation is available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/regact/2010/chc10/chc10.htm 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, tugboats, towboats, barges, dredges, and workboats. The CHC regulation has reporting, recordkeeping, and monitoring requirements. In addition, CHC regulation requires existing Tier 1 and earlier auxiliary and propulsion engines on in-use ferries, excursion vessels, tugboats, towboats, crew and supply, barges, and dredges to meet U.S. EPA Tier 2 or Tier 3 marine engine standards in effect at the time compliance is required. This regulation is part of ARBís ongoing effort to reduce diesel particulate matter in communities located near ports.
