arbcombo -- Warranty Reporting Format for DECS Manufacturers and Installers

Posted: 18 Feb 2014 08:52:27

On October 1, 2013, amendments to the Verification Procedure,
Warranty and In-Use Compliance Requirements for In-Use Strategies
to Control Emissions from Diesel Engines, Title 13, California
Code of Regulations, Sections 2700-2711 (Procedure) became
effective, requiring manufacturers and installers of diesel
emission control strategies (DECS) submit their annual warranty
report in a format approved by the Air Resources Board (ARB). 
The purpose of this mail-out is to provide the electronic annual
warranty report format for submittal to ARB. 
Warranty reports have been required from the DECS manufacturers
since the original adoption of the Procedure.  The warranty
reporting requirements were modified to clarify that all warranty
claims must be submitted in the annual report and delineate
whether the claims are valid warranty claims or denied claims. 
In addition, the adopted amendments require that authorized
installers are identified in the manufacturer’s warranty report. 

Previously installers submitted their warranty information to the
manufacturer, however, the adopted amendments require that
installers begin submitting an installation warranty report
directly to ARB.  The installation warranty report follows the
manufacturer warranty report format with added fields that are
specific to the installation process.  
Attachments 1 and 3 contain an overview of the data file
structure and provide description of the data fields for the
manufacturer’s warranty report and installation warranty report,
respectively.  Attachments 2 and 4 contain the manufacturer’s
warranty report and installation warranty report data template,
respectively.  These are the warranty report information data
input files, in Microsoft Excel format, to be used for submittal
to ARB.  
To download the warranty report templates and template definition
files, please go to:

The Verification Procedure is used to evaluate diesel emission
control strategies to determine if they obtain real and durable
reductions of particulate matter and/or oxides of nitrogen
thereby allowing them to be used as fleet rule compliance
options.  The Procedure requires device manufacturers and the
authorized installers to provide yearly warranty reports in a
format specified by ARB.  Changes to these requirements became
effective on October 1, 2013.
