arbcombo -- Warranty Reporting Format for DECS Manufacturers and Installers Posted: 18 Feb 2014 08:52:27
ANNUAL WARRANTY REPORT FORMAT FOR INSTALLERS AND MANUFACTURERS OF DIESEL EMISSION CONTROL STRATEGIES. 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: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/mailouts/mouts_14.htm For more information about the Verification Program, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/verdev/verdev.htm If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Eniko Szarnyasi, Air Resources Engineer at (626) 350-6415 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. ________________________________ 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. California is in a drought emergency. Visit www.SaveOurH2O.org for water conservation tips.
