LS Mtron, LTD. Settlement
LS Mtron, LTD. Case Settles for $21,375
In December 2015, LS Mtron, Ltd. (LS Mtron), a Korean manufacturer of heavy‑duty, off-road equipment, settled its civil case with the Air Resources Board (ARB) involving violations related to the assembly of a number of production heavy-duty engines that was different from the company’s certified emissions configuration. LS Mtron self-disclosed this issue to ARB and has since implemented appropriate procedures for repairing the engines and ensuring their compliance with the applicable emission standards. LS Mtron fully cooperated with ARB during the agency’s investigation and agreed to pay a penalty of $21,375 in addition to performing the said engine repairs. This amount was calculated at a rate of $375 per unit for the affected 57 engines.
