Transport Refrigeration Unit Compliance Extension Application Based on Delays Due to Installation of Zero-Emission Fueling Infrastructure (TTD/FTB-097)
This application can be used for a one-year compliance extension for the zero-emission truck TRU requirements specified in section 2477.5 (b) due to unforeseen, temporary, or extenuating circumstances outside of the TRU owner’s or owner/operator’s control that prevents the installation of zero-emission fueling Infrastructure at the facility at which the truck TRU fleet is domiciled. TRU owners shall submit an application at least 12 months prior to the zero-emission truck TRU compliance deadline if the delay is due to a utility infrastructure upgrade, and at least 3 months prior for all other delay types. Within 45 days of the submission of a complete application, the Executive Officer will approve, modify, or disapprove the application and notify you. TRU owners may apply for an additional one-year extension, 60 days prior to the expiration of the first extension. TRU owners may apply for an additional compliance extension beyond the first two annual extensions due to a delay in obtaining power from a utility, 60 days prior to the expiration of the second extension.

This application can be used for a one-year compliance extension for the requirements specified in section 2477.5 (a), (b), (c), or (d) if there is no compliance technology available for a specific TRU or TRU generator set within six months of a compliance date. The owner must submit a completed application prior to the compliance date. The owner must demonstrate the absence of any suitable compliance option that can be used on the specific equipment and that the owner cannot otherwise meet the requirements of section 2477.5 (a), (b), (c), or (d) by the compliance date(s). Owners may apply for additional one-year extensions provided the same procedures are followed for each extension.
This application can be used for a safe passage permit if the purpose for the TRU traveling in California is to take the noncompliant TRU to a dealer or installer to bring the equipment into compliance. The TRU shall not be operating in a noncompliant state in California and no temperature-sensitive products shall be transported with the noncompliant TRU. (See 13 CCR 2477.5 (p)).
