This regulation applies to in-use diesel fueled TRU's and TRU generator sets that operate in California, whether or not they are registered in California. This includes all carriers that transport perishable goods using diesel-powered refrigeration systems on trucks, trailers, shipping containers, and railcars that operate in this state.
Once a compliance deadline passes for a TRU's or TRU gen set model year, it is illegal to sell, offer for sale, lease, offer for lease, rent, or offer to rent a TRU for use in California that does not meet the current standards in the Air Toxic Control Measure (ATCM).
The deadline for in-use performance deadlines is as follows: Engines must be compliant by December 31st of the seventh (7th) year after the engine model year.
Example: A 2003 model year engine must comply by December 31st, 2010.
