On October 25, 2016, the U.S. EPA published the final federal
Phase 2 GHG standards.  The federal Phase 2 standards are the
second phase of federal heavy–duty GHG standards and build upon
the federal Phase 1 standards.  The federal Phase 2 standards
will significantly reduce carbon emissions and dramatically
improve the fuel economy for heavy-duty trucks, helping reduce
emissions that cause climate change. They establish national GHG
emission standards that will begin in model year 2021 for new
class 2b to 8 medium- and heavy-duty engines and tractors, and in
2018 model year for certain trailer types.  The federal Phase 2
standards will be fully phased in by model year 2027.  

On December 11, 2008, the Board approved the Tractor-Trailer GHG
regulation codified in sections 95300-95312 of title 17,
California Code of Regulations, and later amended in 2010 and
2014. This regulation required owners of 53-foot or longer
box-type trailers and owners of the heavy-duty tractors that pull
them on California highways to utilize U.S. EPA SmartWay verified
or designated technologies that will reduce GHG emissions and
improve fuel efficiency. In December 2013, ARB staff harmonized
the tractor requirements of the Tractor-Trailer GHG regulation
with the requirements of the Phase 1 standards.
