Mitsubishi Engine North America, Inc. Case Settlement
Mitsubishi Engine North America, Inc. Case Settles for $500
In September 2016, Mitsubishi Engine North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) agreed to pay $500.00 in penalties to the California Air Pollution Control Fund for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Mitsubishi failed to report one off-road compression-ignition engine to ARB pursuant to California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2423 (d)(7) and incorrectly labeled the engine to indicate that it “COMPLIES WITH CALIFORNIA EMISSION REQUIREMENTS UNDER 13 CCR 2423(d).” in 2013. To settle the case, Mitsubishi agreed to the $500.00 penalty and that it will not sell, offer for sale, advertise, or label for introduction into commerce into California any new off-road compression-ignition engine in violation of California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2423 et seq. This settlement takes into consideration that Mitsubishi discovered the violations during a self-audit, subsequently self-reported, and was cooperative throughout the enforcement process.
