Wan Hai Lines Ltd. Case Settles for $31,750
In March 2019, Wan Hai Lines Ltd. (Wan Hai) of Taipei, Taiwan settled violations of the Ocean-Going Vessel At-Berth Regulation for $31,750. The violations were discovered during a routine audit of Wan Hai’s 2017 Port of Los Angeles/Port of Long Beach

Wan Hai cooperated with the investigation and exceeded regulation requirements in the subsequent compliance year. To settle this case, Wan Hai agreed to the $31,750 penalty ($250 per violation) and agreed to comply with CARB regulations.
