CARB Implements The Diesel Filters Rule in California

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

It’s 2013 and things are changing in the trucking industry once again. Since January 1st, 2013 the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has designated a diesel filters requirement in California.

The Diesel Filters rule by CARB will impact all heavy-duty trucks and buses traveling into California.

The Diesel filters will require all heavy-duty truck drivers and bus drivers with 2000-2004 model year engines to install diesel soot filters.

The only exception goes for low-mileage or emergency vehicles. It should be noted that non-compliant vehicles might not be eligible to legally operate in California.

Anyone driver who violates the rule will be penalized $1,000 and over per violation, per month.

Non-compliance may also result in the truck or bus being impounded. Learn more about the Diesel Filters rule at Arb.Ca.Gov, or call 1-866-6-DIESEL.
