CARB Schedules Webinar on its Reefer Regulations

California’s Air Resources Board (CARB) has scheduled a free regulatory training webinar to go over its rules related to reefers in the state, which CARB formally terms Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs). The webinar is scheduled for September 19, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EDT. Click here for registration.

Topics covered will include:

  • Regulation Applicability
  • Hiring and Contracting TRUs
  • Compliance Requirements
  • Registration and Labeling


Webinar summary: “Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs) are used on semi-trailers, truck vans, shipping containers, and rail cars. Most TRUs are diesel-powered. Although TRU engines are relatively small, significant numbers of these engines congregate at distribution centers, truck stops, and other facilities, resulting in exposure to diesel particulate matter (PM) and health risks to those that live and work nearby. To reduce the risks of exposure to diesel PM from TRUs, owners, operators, dispatchers, and distribution centers must comply with the TRU Air Toxic Control Measure (ATCM). “
