NAFA & California Air Resource Board Hold Teleconference to Discuss Proposed Diesel Emissions Rule

July 13, 2004

Several members of the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) met during the week of July 6-9 via conference call with officials from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to discuss a proposed rule to control diesel emissions. The proposed regulation requires municipalities, public agencies and utilities to reduce diesel particulate emissions from on-road heavy-duty diesel-fueled vehicles beginning in 2006.The rule would apply to new and existing vehicles and would include retrofitting with diesel particulate traps. Other discussion topics during the NAFA/ARB meeting included: whether biodiesel could be used under the rule; the feasibility of proposed compliance deadlines and existing government procurement cycles; availability, performance, and warranty provisions for diesel particulate traps; and recordkeeping requirements. For further information or to be included in subsequent meetings contact NAFA's Legislative Counsel Patrick O'Connor at [email protected]
