2003 ZEV Program Board Activities
This page last reviewed November 20, 2008
|In 1990 the California Air Resources Board adopted the Zero Emission Vehicle
(ZEV) program. The ZEV program is an integral part of California's Low Emission Vehicle program and is intended
to secure increasing air quality benefits for California over the long term.
Air Resources Board's (ARB) staff proposed changes to the ZEV regulation in March 2003 that were designed to address
issues raised by industry litigation and to take into account current conditions and trends in zero and near-zero
emissions technology development. The Board delayed making a decision until April 2003. Please visit this web page
to get information about this rulemaking. Check out our new fact sheet with the 2003 ZEV Changes.
In September 2003 the Board looked at ZEV Credits
for Supplemental Activities.
