Who Needs to Report for 2016?
The reporting period for 2016 compliance closes January 31, 2016. Those who had opted-in to mileage based extension for 2015 must report end of year odometer readings and confirm whether you will continue to use the same option in 2016.  By reporting, owners can take advantage of flexibility options for heavy-duty diesel powered vehicles subject to the Truck and Bus regulation.  

The following is a list of the compliance options and reporting deadlines:
NOx exempt area operation January 31 of any year
Low-use January 31 of any year
Low-Mileage Work Truck Option January 31 of any year
Note: must report odometer reading and confirm selection before deadline.

Vehicle owners that already reported will need to update their vehicle and owner information as it changes.
  • If you bought or sold vehicles from your fleet, installed filters, or upgraded engines on any of your vehicles you must report that information within 30 days of the change.
  • If you reported for a mileage based extensions such as the low-mileage work truck extension, the agricultural vehicle extension, or the low-use exemption, you must report your vehicle's January 1 odometer reading by January 31 each year. Also, if you sell a vehicle that was using the extension, then you must report the ending odometer reading.
  • Fleet owners wishing to continue using a compliance option from the prior year must re-select the compliance option for 2016 compliance year.  For example: A vehicle that had selected the 2015 Low-Use Exemption for the 2015 compliance year must re-select the 2016 Low-Use Exemption for the 2016 compliance year in order to retain the Low-Use Exemption.

The following optons are now closed to new fleets:
Small Fleet Option Closed as of January 31, 2014
PM Filter Phase-In Option Closed as of January 31, 2014
Agricultural Vehicle Closed as of January 31, 2015
Log truck phase-in Closed as of January 31, 2015

A motorhome used solely for personal use is exempt for the clean-up requirements of the regulation and does not need to be reported.
