Off-Road Implementation Advisory Group (ORIAG)

This page last reviewed February 28, 2011


Background

On Road Vehicle image The Air Resources Board (ARB) staff has begun implementation efforts for the in-use off-road diesel vehicle regulation. The Final Rulemaking Package was filed with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) and became effective on June 15, 2008. The regulation requires reporting for all fleets in California in 2009, and the largest fleets will need to begin demonstrating emission reductions by Spring 2010. At the suggestion of several industry stakeholders, ARB has formed an advisory group to assist staff with implementation now that the regulation has been adopted.

The off-road implementation advisory group (ORIAG) is an informal committee, whose goal is to help ARB staff fine tune our outreach, training, and implementation materials and help make staff more aware of the needs and opinions of affected stakeholders.

The responsibilities of ORIAG members are as follows:

  • Attend meetings approximately quarterly from 2008 to 2010. The meetings may last from two to six hours each.
  • Discuss and provide ideas on ways of reaching affected fleets.
  • Review and provide feedback on training presentations, handouts, flyers, and fact sheets developed by ARB staff.
  • Review and provide feedback on reporting and compliance planning tools developed by ARB staff.
  • Review and provide feedback on rule interpretation and guidance documents developed by ARB staff.

Although we had to limit ORIAG membership to a finite number, all members of the public are welcome to attend the meetings and there will be an open comment period at the end of each meeting.
