General Session: CARB Regulations

Sponsored by ACT1

California recently approved a sweeping regulation mandating truck manufacturers sell a rising number of zero-emission trucks starting in 2024 with the goal of every new truck sold in the state being zero-emission by 2045. CARB also just adopted an ultra-low NOx emissions rule for trucks that will take effect in 2024 and will be finalizing new requirements for zero-emission truck purchases, refrigerated trailer electric stand-by, and a statewide truck inspection and maintenance program. In addition, new mandated extended warranty requirements are coming into play in California beginning in 2022. As the world’s fifth largest economy, California’s regulatory agenda often creates a precedent and template for other states to follow. In this session, we will take a deep dive into CARB’s impact on interstate commerce and why fleets nationwide need to pay particular attention to the policies coming out of Sacramento.
