PMP Corporation Settlement
$75,000 in Fines Paid by PMP Corporation
In February 2008, the ARB and PMP Corporation, a Connecticut company, concluded a settlement valued at $75,000. This case was investigated and documented by staff in the Strategic Environmental Investigations& Enforcement Section (SEIES). The matter was referred to ARB by the California Air Pollution Control Officers Association (CAPCOA), with assistance from staff of the Sacramento Metropolitan AQMD and MLD Vapor Recovery In-Use Program Section. The ARB alleged that between November 2002 and November 2005, PMP Corporation and its agents violated California Health and Safety Code (CH&SC) §41954: Selling and offering for sale rebuilt vapor recovery components that have not been certified for sale in California. PMP Corporation failed to comply with the certification procedure pursuant to CH&SC §41954 and promulgated in CCR Title 17, §94011 (CP-201). Records show that 3,638 uncertified vapor pumps were sold in California during this period. PMP Corporation has agreed to fully comply with California air pollution laws and paid $56,250 as a penalty. In addition, they have paid $18,750 towards a Supplement Environmental Project (SEP). These SEP funds have been applied to the “California District Attorneys Association” (CDAA) for the CDAA Circuit Prosecutor Project.
