Peterson Trucks: Your Emissions Expert

With the approval of the Truck and Bus Regulation by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) , new emissions standards for in-use on-road heavy-duty diesel vehicles are in effect with additional compliance deadlines coming soon. Peterson is dedicated both to helping you understand CARB emissions requirements - from determining your compliance deadlines to helping you report your fleet to the Air Resources Board - and providing you with the most up-to-date technology for meeting California emissions standards.

What is the CARB Truck and Bus Regulation?

Applying to privately and publically owned diesel trucks with a GVWR of over 14,000 pounds, this regulation required all applicable trucks to be fitted with a particulate matter (PM) filter by January 1, 2012. By the beginning of 2015, older trucks (with a 1995 model year engines or later) must be replaced with newer trucks. By 2023, all trucks in-service will be required to have 2010 model year engines or newer. The regulation is intended to reduce emissions of diesel particulate matter and oxides of nitrogen.
