Enforcement of Clean Truck Check HD I/M Regulation
Enforcement of Clean Truck Check – Heavy-Duty Inspection and Maintenance (HD I/M) Program Regulation
The Clean Truck Check HD I/M regulation began in January 2023 to ensure polluting, poorly maintained heavy-duty vehicles operating in California are quickly identified and repaired, and to promote a level playing field for businesses that operate compliant vehicles. This webpage is designed to assist vehicle owners, operators, freight contractors, seaports, and railyards to respond to CARB once they are engaged in enforcement actions that may result from inspections, tests, or audits of vehicles, engines, and records.
For information on how to comply with the regulation prior to enforcement and help avoid outcomes such as vehicle registration holds, penalties or fines, and possible public posting of settlements, please go to the Clean Truck Check HD I/M regulation home page: Clean Truck Check HD I/M | California Air Resources Board.
Clean Truck Check HD I/M succeeds the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Inspection Program (HDVIP) in January 2023 and will succeed the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) when Clean Truck Check periodic testing requirements begin in 2024. CARB may continue to enforce requirements for fleet compliance when HDVIP and PSIP were active. Letters and emails from CARB Enforcement provide how to respond to and resolve audits, inspections, violations, and citations.
