The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites the public to participate in a workgroup on August 1, from 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. (PDT) to discuss the proposed adoption of a schedule of certification fees for emissions-related aftermarket parts, retrofits and related components. Historically, only about one-third of the products certified by CARB have been assessed a certification fee. On July 1, 2018, new legislation passed by the California legislature and signed by the Governor allows CARB to adopt a schedule of fees for additional mobile source categories and activities.
The public workgroup is directed toward the aftermarket parts, retrofit and emissions-related parts industry; for example, those who receive the following Executive Orders (EOs):
- AB-series EOs, At-Berth Regulation Alternative Control Technology Verification/Approvals
- B-series EOs, Alternative Fuel Retrofit Certifications
- C-series EOs, Experimental Permits
- D-series EOs, Aftermarket Parts Exemptions
- DE-series EOs, Verification of Diesel Emissions-Control Strategies (e.g., On/Off Road, SS, Harbor Craft, TRU, RTG)
- G-series EOs, Portable Fuel Containers
- K-series EOs, Aftermarket Critical Emission Control Parts for Highway Motorcycles
- Q-series EOs, Evaporative Components for Small Off-Road Engine Equipment
- RM-series EOs, Evaporative Components for Spark-Ignition Marine Water Craft
