Crary Industries, Inc. Settlement
Crary Industries, Inc. Settles For $2,403
In October 2021, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Crary Industries, Inc. (Crary), based in North Dakota, for Crary’s violation of Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, §§ 2750-2774, the State’s “Evaporative Emission Requirements for Off-Road Equipment” Regulation. The full penalty amount will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality.
CARB certification staff referred the matter to enforcement staff when it was discovered that Crary failed to obtain an Executive Order (EO) for the 2020 model year. CARB alleges Crary violated Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, §§ 2750-2774 by manufacturing for sale or lease equipment powered by small off-road engines (SORE) for use in California, without obtaining a CARB issued EO. These products were then sold by their distributor into California. To come into compliance, Crary now understands the CARB EO process and obtained an EO for 2021 model year. The company fully cooperated with CARB to resolve this matter.
