For Tier 1 engines:

If purchase records are available, the fees must be based on the earlier of the year of purchase, or the year that Tier 2 standards started. Tier 2 standards started in 2004, 2003, 2001, 2002, and 2006 for engines in the corresponding brake horsepower ranges as listed in the table above.

If purchase records are not available, the fees must be based on the model year of the engine.

Example #1: Tier 1 engine model year 1997, rated at 180 BHP that had never been registered was bought used in 2005. There is a copy of the bill of sale. The registration fee would be $1,250 based on 2003, the year that Tier 2 took effect for that size engine, since it is earlier than the year of purchase.

Example #2: Tier 1 engine model year 1999, rated at 365 BHP that had never been registered was bought used in 2002. There is no purchase documentation. The registration fee would be $1,880 based on 1999, the model year of that engine.

Example #3: Tier 1 engine model year 1996, rated at 275 BHP that had never been registered was bought used in 2001. There is a copy of the purchase order from 2001. The registration fee would be $1,565 based on 2001, the year that engine was purchased since it is earlier than the Tier 2 start date for that size engine.

Example #4: Tier 1 engine model year 2003, rated at 80 BHP was bought new in 2004. There is a bill of sale available. The registration fee would be $1,093 based on 2004, the year of purchase of that engine.

For Tier 2 engines:

If purchase records are available, the fees must be based on the year of purchase. If purchase records are not available, the fees must be based on the model year of the engine.

Example #1: Tier 2 engine, model year 2001, which had never been registered, was bought in 2005. There is a copy of the bill of sale from 2005 with the application submitted in 2007. The registration fee would be $935 based on the year of purchase.

Example #2: Tier 2 engine, model year 2003, which had never been registered was bought in 2006. There is no purchase documentation with the application submitted in 2007. The registration fee would be $1,250 based on the model year of that engine.


"Flex" Engines

Engines built according to the flexibility provisions of 40 CFR 89.102 are not subject to the increased fees as listed in the emergency provisions. These "flex" engines may apply to PERP using the normal application fees of $270 per engine, but proof that the engines are part of the flexibility provisions must be submitted with the application. Acceptable forms of proof are a photograph of the engine label or a statement from the engine manufacturer listing the engine by serial number as a "flex" engine.
