This page last reviewed August 2nd, 2013.

In April 2013, the ARB reached a settlement with MTU that included a $500 penalty to the California Air Pollution Control Fund for bringing a mislabeled engine into California in violation of Title 13, California Code of Regulations and ARB’s Executive Order. 

On January 24, 2012, ARB representatives discovered that MTU had introduced into the California market a mislabeled Stationary Source Engine. An investigation by ARB initiated in March 2012 and in June 2012 the inspection confirmed that MTU did bring a mislabeled engine into California. The one (1) engine was inspected and was found that it met the requirements of a Stationary Engine, not a Portable Equipment Engine, as originally labeled. The label on the engine was found to be incorrect during the investigation which is in violation of Title 13, CCR section 2424. MTU agreed to ship the correct label to the end user and notify ARB of any other mislabeled engines in California. The case settled in April 2013, for Five Hundred Dollars ($500).
