Public Workshop to Discuss Updates to the new Electronic Certification Database for On-Road Heavy-Duty Engines, Vehicles, and Powertrains and Off-Road Compression-Ignition Engines.
The California Air Resources Board will hold a public, online workshop to discuss updates to the electronic certification database for on-road heavy-duty engines, vehicles, and powertrains and off-road compression-ignition engines. The workshop will occur at September 29, 2021, 9 am - 12 pm. An electronic copies of the staff presentation and other documents are available below.
Workshop Presentation: Overview of the E-Cert Project
E-Cert Data Requirements: ver B rev 1.050
Walkthroughs: Using E-Cert Data Requirements
The Heavy-Duty, Off-Road Compression-Ignition, and Heavy-Duty Greenhouse Gas certification programs of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are responsible for the certification of select classes of engines, vehicles, and powertrains to the required emissions standards before sale, import, delivery, receipt, or operation in the State of California, and these programs fulfill this responsibility through annual review of information submitted by engine, vehicle, and powertrain manufacturers. The time and effort required for review of manufacturer data has steadily increased as emissions regulations and the engine and vehicle systems used to meet those regulations have become more complex. The E-Cert certification database is a comprehensive project with the primary intent of keeping the annual review effort at a manageable level while regulations and engines and vehicle systems evolve. Manufacturers requesting certification will submit electronic applications with general information, descriptions of emission control systems, engine and vehicle models, test data, and other information via an online portal, and will submit supporting documentation to an online document management system.
