The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to
participate in a final public workshop to discuss updates to
CARBís enforcement policy. Our current penalty policy was adopted
in 2011.  CARB is updating its penalty policy partly to respond
to AB 1685 (2016) which, among other things, increases the
maximum penalties for mobile source violations and clarifies how
those penalties can be applied.  In addition to updating the
current penalty policy to address AB1685, we are taking this
opportunity to develop a more comprehensive enforcement policy.  

The workshop will be held at the following location and time:
Date:        August 21, 2017
Time:        1:00 p.m. Ė 4:00 p.m.
Location:    Cal/EPA Building 
             1001 I Street, Sierra Hearing Room 
             Sacramento, California 95812  
Directions:  https://goo.gl/maps/NCmBsDmGe672 
Webcast:     https://video.calepa.ca.gov/

A copy of the draft policy and presentation slides is now posted
at https://www.arb.ca.gov/enf/policy2017.htm.  Staff will also
distribute hard copies of the draft policy and presentation
slides at the workshop.


The current penalty policy was developed in 2011 to comply with
SB 1402 (2010) which required that CARB articulate the basis for
determining penalties for violations discovered through
enforcement actions.  CARB is updating its current penalty policy
partly to respond to AB 1685 (2016), which better aligns
Californiaís maximum mobile source penalties with federal
penalties.  AB 1685 increases the maximum penalty for mobile
source violations, and clarifies CARBís ability to enforce
multiple violations for each applicable mobile source.  CARB is
soliciting public input on potential impacts of AB 1685 and on
developing a more comprehensive enforcement policy overall.
