Manual IDN Application (Registration) Forms

If there is no way that you can apply for IDNs electronically, submit both forms found below. Follow the instructions on the ARBER TRU IDN Manual Application instructions page.  It takes up to 30 days to get IDNs when you submit manual applications.
  • TRU ATCM Equipment Registration Form (form #29)
  • TRU ATCM Model-Engine-Compliance Information Form (form #30)

Manual Operator Reports:
If you operate a terminal in California where you garage, maintain, operate, or dispatch TRUs, you must comply with the Operator Report requirements of the TRU ATCM.  Currently the ARBER system does not accept Operator Reports without inputting at least one ARB Identification Number (IDN).  ARBER will not issue an IDN for a noncompliant engine. You must update your Operator Report within 30 days of receiving your IDN.
Third Party Agreement Forms:

TRU ATCM Third Party Agreement Confirmation Form for LEASED Units: This form may be used by an owner (lessor), that conveys the use of their transport refrigeration unit (TRU) and TRU generator set by lease agreement to an operator (lessee), to delegate the TRU ATCM responsibilities for equipment registration to the lessee.  See TRU ATCM Advisory 08-04 for more details.

TRU ATCM Third Party Agreement Confirmation Form for CONTRACTORS/CONSULTANTS: This form may be used by an owner (lessor), that conveys the use of their transport refrigeration unit (TRU) and TRU generator set by lease agreement to an operator (lessee), to delegate the TRU ATCM responsibilities for equipment registration to a third part contractor or consultant.

Notice of Requirement for Carriers to Comply with CARB's TRU ATCM:

Letter Template for Notice from Hiring Business Entity to Carriers Regarding New Requirements (Espaņol): The business entity (e.g. broker, forwarder, shipper, or receiver) that hires refrigerated carriers to transport perishable goods on California highways or railways should send a letter to the carriers they do business with, making them aware that the hiring business entity requires all of the refrigerated carriers they hire to comply with the TRU Regulation's in-use performance standards.  The notice would also say the hiring business entity now requires refrigerated carriers to:  

  1. Certify to the hiring business entity that they (the carrier) will only dispatch TRUs that comply with the in-use performance standards 
  2. Register their TRUs in ARB's Equipment Registration (ARBER) system if they will travel on California highways or railways 
  3. Print out the ARBER certification page for each TRU 
  4. Send those pages to the broker, forwarder, shipper, or receiver  

More detailed discussion about these letters and when to send them is now included at Item #11.A. in the recently updated Guidance for Brokers, Forwarders, Shippers, Receivers, Carriers, and Drivers on Hiring and Contracting TRU-Carrier Transport of Perishable Goods on California Highways and Railways (Espaņol).
