tru -- ARB Compliance Extension Application Form now available for TRU (reefer) regulation.

Posted: 01 Dec 2011 11:19:24
On October 21, 2011, the California Air Resources Board approved
an amendment to the Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU or reefer)
regulation that allows compliance dates to be extended for a
limited time if compliance equipment has been ordered, but there
is a delay in delivery or installation that prevents compliance
by the deadline. 

For model year 2004 engines, owners must make a good-faith effort
to comply by the end of 2011.  Purchase orders for compliance
equipment need to be placed early enough to take into account
delivery, installation, holiday, and year-end lead times.  If
compliance cannot be achieved by December 31, 2011, due to delays
in delivery, installation, or financing, reefer owners may apply
for a compliance extension.  To qualify for a compliance
extension, the reefer must be registered in ARBER and a
compliance extension application with attached supporting
documentation must be received at ARB by December 31, 2011.

For equipment that has been ordered, but not received, attached
documentation must include a purchase order that includes the
date that the order was placed and a written statement from the
compliance equipment supplier that provides the original
estimated delivery date and the delivery schedule updated within
the last 30 days.

For equipment that has been ordered and received, but not
installed, attached documentation must include a purchase order
that includes the date the order was placed and the date the
equipment was received.  Attached documentation must also include
a written statement from the installer that provides the original
estimated installation date and the installation schedule updated
within the last 30 days.

For delays due to a financing application that has been completed
and submitted, but the financial institution has not completed
its processing, the attached documentation must include a written
statement from the financial institution that explains the reason
for the delayed processing and an estimate of the date that
processing will be completed.  Noncompliance due to denied
financing does not qualify.
