Did you order compliance technology for your model year 2007 transport refrigeration unit (TRU) by the purchase order deadline, but delivery or installation will be delayed so compliance by December 31, 2014 is not possible?
If so, your compliance extension application, with attached supporting documentation, must be received at the California Air Resources Board (CARB) by December 31, 2014.
The TRU regulation’s purchase order deadlines are:
•For reefer trailers, TRU unit replacements, and TRU engine repowers: August 31, four months ahead of the compliance deadline.
•For verified diesel particulate filter (DPF) retrofits: October 31, two months ahead of the compliance deadline.
For model year 2007 engines/units, owners must make a good-faith effort to comply by the end of 2014. If in-use compliance cannot be achieved by Dec 31, 2014, due to delays in delivery or installation, owners may apply for a compliance extension. The compliance extension application, with attached supporting documentation showing purchase order date was on or before the above applicable deadlines, must be received at CARB by Dec 31, 2014.
Call the TRU Help Line at 1-888-878-2826 or 1-916-327-8737 to answer a few preliminary questions to ensure you qualify and request a compliance extension application.
