December 2013 Regulatory Advisory Forms

As specified in the December 2013 Regulatory Advisory, fleets need to notify ARB of their intention to qualify for temporary relief under each scenario they intend to use. Fleets also need to provide evidence that they have made a good faith effort to comply with the At-Berth Regulation. To do this, fleets must complete the "December 2013 Regulatory Advisory Notification" form and return it by March 21, 2014. After the advisory period ends, fleets are also required to provide verification of their claims. To do this, fleets must complete the separate “December 2013 Regulatory Advisory Reporting Form.” ARB staff may ask fleets to provide additional information to support their good faith effort claims.

Only fleet operators choosing the equivalent emissions reduction option can accrue and use fleet emission credits. Credits are calculated on a case by case basis.
