Manual Operator Reports
If you operate a terminal in California where you garage, maintain, operate, or dispatch TRUs, you must comply with the Operator Report requirements of the TRU ATCM. Currently the ARBER system does not accept Operator Reports without inputting at least one ARB IDN. ARBER will not issue an IDN for a noncompliant engine. You must update your Operator Report within 30 days of receiving your IDN.

Notice of Requirement for Carriers to Comply with CARB's TRU ATCM
Letter Template for Notice from Hiring Business Entity to Carriers Regarding New Requirements (Español): The business entity (e.g. broker, forwarder, shipper, or receiver) that hires refrigerated carriers to transport perishable goods on California highways or railways should send a letter to the carriers they do business with, making them aware that the hiring business entity requires all of the refrigerated carriers they hire to comply with the TRU Regulation's in-use performance standards. The notice would also say the hiring business entity now requires refrigerated carriers to:
- Certify to the hiring business entity that they (the carrier) will only dispatch TRUs that comply with the in-use performance standards
- Register their TRUs in the ARBER system if they will travel on California highways or railways
- Print out the ARBER certification page for each TRU
- Send those pages to the broker, forwarder, shipper, or receiver
More detailed discussion about these letters and when to send them is now included at Item #11.A. in the recently updated Guidance for Brokers, Forwarders, Shippers, Receivers, Carriers, and Drivers on Hiring and Contracting TRU-Carrier Transport of Perishable Goods on California Highways and Railways (Español).
