All fleets must report if they seek to phase-in requirements, claim credits for downsizing or apply for time extensions.
CleanFleets.net is assisting hundreds of fleets and welcome your call for fee-based reporting assistance.

Since the late 1990s fleet owners have been required to perform an annual opacity test (known as “snap idle” or PSIP) on trucks greater than 6,000 lbs GVWR. Failure to perform the test when applicable is a violation of state law.

Since 2007 an emissions control label is required on all 1974 and newer diesel vehicle engines on California roads. The ECL contains key information about your future compliance requirements.
Know the law...

…and avoid the fines.

On May 6, 2014, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) announced over $2 million in penalties were paid by over 250 motor carriers for failing to comply with CARB's rules.
During the summer of 2012, over 7,200 diesel program inspections took place resulting in hundreds of citations.


In these tight budget times fleet managers should avoid becoming a statistic.

More Info
Municipal, state agency and special district trucks greater than 14,000 lbs GVWR are required to have filters install on all 2006 and older engines by the end of last year.

More than 6,000 trash and recycling collection trucks must maintain the filters they installed between 2004 and 2010 and plan to replace more than 1,000 trucks that will expire in 2015.
