ordiesel -- 2011 Large Fleet Reporting and Compliance Certification

Posted: 28 Mar 2011 13:24:35
This note is to inform fleets that ARB will not be enforcing the
April 1, 2011, off-road regulation large fleet reporting and
compliance certification deadline. The first large fleet annual
reporting date (and due date for a signed statement affirming
compliance) will instead be March 1, 2012.  Section 2449(g)(2) of
the off-road regulation that is currently in effect includes a
requirement for large fleets to update their DOORS data and
submit a compliance certification signed by a responsible
official (now called a Responsible Official Affirmation of
Reporting) by April 1, 2011, but the December 2010 amendments
modified this requirement.  Prior to the December 2010
amendments, fleets were required to submit the compliance
certification by April 1 of each year.  The amendments voted on
by the board in December would require fleets to submit a
Responsible Official Affirmation of Reporting (formerly
compliance certification) by March 1 of each year.  To avoid
confusion, neither deadline is being enforced for calendar year
2011.  However, we encourage you to double check that your DOORS
data is accurate.  Additionally, we thank those fleets who have
already submitted their annual reporting and compliance
certification for this year. 

We also remind fleets that the requirements to report added
vehicles within 30 days to ARB and the requirement to label
vehicles with red and white Equipment Identification Numbers
(EINs) remain in effect and are being enforced.  Your diligence
in submitting this information on time is greatly appreciated.


At the December 17, 2010 Board Hearing the Air Resources Board
voted on major amendments to the off-road regulation.  The
amendments include a four year delay from the original timeline
for all fleets, making the first compliance deadline January 1,
2014, for large fleets (over 5,000 hp), January 1, 2017, for
medium fleets (2,501-5,000 hp), and January 1, 2019, for small
fleets (2,500 hp or less).  They also include a dramatic
reduction and simplification in the annual requirements for
fleets, and fleet average structure, making exhaust retrofits no
longer mandatory, and raising the low use threshold to 200 hours
per year.

The off-road regulation is intended to reduce toxic and
smog-forming emissions from off-road vehicles.  Reducing such
emissions is necessary to meet federally imposed clean air
standards and to reduce the adverse health effects from air
pollution throughout the state.  

If you have any questions regarding off-road reporting, please
contact the DOORS hotline at (877) 59-DOORS (877-593-6677) or by
