CARB Plans Informational Workshop on Phase 2 GHG Regulation

CARB has announced they will be holding a public workshop on July 24, 9:30 a.m. Pacific time, to discuss “potential minor amendments” to the California Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Regulation and to provide guidance on its Phase 2 GHG Trailer Certification rules.

CARB says potential amendments discussed “may include” updates to the environmental performance label and end of year reporting requirements, expansion of the hybrid powertrain testing provisions, as well as typographical and grammatical revisions. Staff will also provide clarification on vehicle air conditioning leakage requirements and discuss updates to the Phase 2 trailer certification process.

California Phase 2 trailer standards take effect in 2020. According to CARB, the standards are intended to make trailers more efficient and lower the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their use. Affected trailer types include box-type trailers (dry van and refrigerated van trailers of all lengths), flat bed trailers, tank trailers, and container chassis.

The workshop meeting will be held at the following time and place:

Date: July 24, 2019
