Who Needs to Report for 2014?
Compliance requirements are currently in effect for heavier vehicles with a GVWR greater than 26,000 lbs. with engine years 1996 or newer.  To assist vehicle owners with the transition to the upcoming January 1, 2014, particulate matter (PM) filter compliance deadline, the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) is taking specific actions to provide additional time for owners to complete their good faith compliance efforts and to take advantage of additional flexibility for many lower use vehicles and vehicles that operate solely in certain areas of the State as explained in the regulatory advisory MSC 13-28.  Owners will have the opportunity to use the following options under certain conditions but must report by January 31, 2014.

  • Small Fleet Option
  • PM Filter Phase-In Option
  • Low Mileage Construction Truck
  • Agricultural Vehicle
  • NOx exempt area operation
  • Log truck phase-in
  • Low-use
  • Manufacturer delay
  • Good Faith Effort

Fleets that already reported will need to update their vehicle and owner information as it changes.
  • If you bought or sold vehicles from your fleet, installed filters, or upgraded engines on any of your vehicles you must report that information within 30 days.
  • If you reported for a mileage based extensions such as the low-mileage construction truck extension, the agricultural vehicle extension, or the low-use exemption, you must report your vehicle's January 1 odometer reading by January 31 each year. Also, if you sell a vehicle that was using the extension, then you must report the ending odometer reading.
