The Cargo Handling Equipment Regulation required annual reporting from January 2007 to January 2016. General annual reporting is no longer required. However, CARB accepts voluntary reporting of newly purchased and in-use equipment at any time.
Additionally, end-users are subject to recordkeeping requirements as outlined in section 2479(i) of the CHE Regulation for opacity testing and other provisions.
An updated equipment inventory and opacity test result data may be requested by CARB staff as part of an enforcement inspection and as part of a compliance check for various funding projects offered by CARB or the air districts. New companies may also be asked to submit an equipment inventory and to verify that their engines are compliant with the CHE Regulation.
Please contact CARB staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916)-323-4327 if you have questions or would like to update your annual report. Reporting forms are also available upon request.
