cargo -- Proposed Changes to Cargo Handling Equipment Regulation Approved by the Board Posted: 18 Dec 2008 12:45:37
On December 12, 2008, the Air Resources Board (ARB) adopted a proposal that will exempt sweepers and mobile cranes (other than rubber-tired gantry cranes) from the Cargo Handling Equipment Regulation and place them under either the In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation or the In-Use Heavy-Duty Diesel Vehicle Regulation (On-Road Truck and Bus Regulation). Enforcement of these changes will begin after the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) approves the regulatory changes, which is expected to occur some time next year. Once the OAL approves the changes to the regulation, mobile cranes and sweepers will be regulated as follows: - All two-engine cranes, off-road single-engine cranes, and off-road single-engine sweepers will be subject to the Regulation for In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicles (sections 2449, 2449.1, 2449.2, 2449.3, title 13, California Code of Regulations). For more information, visit the Regulation for In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicles website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/ordiesel/ordiesel.htm - All on-road sweepers and on-road single-engine cranes will be subject to the On-Road Truck and Bus Regulation.
