CARB Suspends Imminent GHG Rule for Trailers

The California Air Resources Board announced Dec. 3 it was suspending enforcement for at least two years of its greenhouse gas (GHG) trailer standards, which had been set to go into effect Jan. 1.

The state’s standards are largely similar to the delayed federal GHG emission standards for trailers, which could be met by equipping trailers with features that reduce aerodynamic drag, low-rolling-resistance tires, tire pressure monitoring system, and weight reduction measures.

A key issue yet to be decided in court is whether trailers are considered new motor vehicles that EPA may regulate under the Clean Air Act.

The CARB advisory stated the suspension would, at a minimum, be in effect for model year 2020 and 2021 trailers manufactured before Jan. 1, 2022.

At the same time, CARB will give trailer manufacturers selling trailers in California six months notice before it begins enforcing the GHG trailer standards.
