Denyo America Corporation Case Settles for $164,000

This page last reviewed September 21, 2012

In August 2012, Denyo America Corporation (Denyo) agreed to pay $164,000.00 in penalties to the California Air Pollution Control Fund for violating air quality regulations.  An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Denyo failed to comply with the small off-road engine regulation by neglecting to certify evaporative emissions components prior to import and sale in California.   Although not submitted for certification approval, the units would have met ARB certification standards.  To settle the case, Denyo agreed to the $164,000.00 penalty and to comply with the 13 California Code of Regulations section 2400(a)(2) with respect to the sale of non-certified small off-road engines.  This settlement takes into consideration that Denyo self-reported violations, was proactive and cooperative throughout the enforcement process, and does not have a history of violations.
