cargo -- Office of Administrative Law Approves Cargo Handling Equipment Amendments

Posted: 18 Sep 2012 10:24:21
The Office of Administrative Law has approved the Amendments to
the Cargo Handling Equipment Regulation. 

The Office of Administrative Law (OAL) has approved the
Amendments to the Regulation for Mobile Cargo Handling Equipment
at Ports and Intermodal Rail Yards (section 2479 of title 13,
California Code of Regulations).  OAL approved the rulemaking and
filed it with the Secretary of State on September 14, 2012. The
amendments to the regulation will become effective on October 14,
2012. The final text of the regulation is available on our
regulatory website: 
http://www.arb.ca.gov/regact/2011/cargo11/cargo11.htm

Cargo handling equipment is used to transfer goods or perform
maintenance and repair activities and includes equipment such as
yard trucks (hostlers), rubber-tired gantry cranes, top handlers,
side handlers, forklifts, and loaders, just to name a few.  The
Regulation for Mobile Cargo Handling Equipment at Ports and
Intermodal Rail Yards was adopted in December 2005 (and amended
in September 2011) to reduce diesel particulate matter in
communities located near ports and intermodal rail yards.
