Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine America Inc. Settlement
Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine America Inc. Settles for $7,750
In August of 2020, Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine America Inc. (Mitsubishi) headquartered in Itasca, Illinois settled its case with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for violations of California Code of Regulations Title 13, Section 2423.
Mitsubishi introduced into California commerce Off-Road Compression Ignition engines (CI), for use in California that failed to comply with the requirements of the Off-Road CI Regulation by failing to meet the recordkeeping requirements for replacement engines (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, § 2423(j)(1)).
Mitsubishi fully cooperated with CARB during the agency’s investigation. The resulting settlement requires the company to pay a $125 per unit penalty resulting in a total penalty of $7,750, to be deposited into the Air Pollution Control Fund. Going forward Mitsubishi revamped their internal process to ensure proper recordkeeping for all replacement engines sold into California.
Mitsubishi agrees that any CI sold, supplied, offered for sale, advertised, or manufactured for sale in California, will comply with all applicable standards.
