California Regulations

Requirements and Compliance

California continues to lead the way when it comes to higher emissions

regulations. On December 12, 2008 the California Air Resource Board

approved the CARB Compliance, with a goal of reducing particulate matter

and oxides of nitrogen emissions from diesel vehicles. Effective December

31, 2011, any reefer unit from 2004 or older must retrofit current engines

with a Lower Level Emissions Reduction System or purchase a New One.
