Commercial Harbor Craft
There are several types of harbor craft in California, including fishing vessels, ferries, excursion vessels, tug boats, tow boats, crew and supply boats, barges, dredges, and other vessel types. The Commercial Harbor Craft (CHC) Regulation was adopted in 2007 to reduce toxic and criteria emissions to protect public health. It was then amended in 2010 and will be fully implemented by the end of 2022. On September 21, 2021, CARB proposed amendments to the CHC Regulation.
