ARBER TRU Compliance Information Help Page

This page last reviewed on April 26, 2016.

ARBER is the ARB Equipment Registration software for the Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU) ATCM and the Drayage Truck Regulation.  The ARBER system was designed to provide owners of TRU or TRU generator sets (gensets) with a method of registering their equipment online to determine compliance with the TRU ATCM.  ARBER will automatically issue an ARB identification number (IDN) for fully compliant TRU/TRU gensets.  Initial registration in ARBER will allow you to create a company profile, establish users and user accounts for your company, and receive an Owner Operator Number (OON).  The information below is provided to help registrants complete the TRU Compliance Information page in ARBER.

If you have further questions or are having difficulty completing the information on the ARBER TRU Compliance Information Page, please contact the toll-free TRU Help Line at:  (888)TRU-ATCM (888)878-2826.

Information submitted must be true, accurate, and complete.  Within 30 days of a change in ownership or compliance status, the new information must be entered in the ARBER system.  This includes updates to the company profile and primary contact information.  Failure to report updates or submittal of false information is a violation of state law subject to civil and criminal penalties.
