Overview

This document has been designed to help our regulatory compliance customers navigate California emissions regulations. The California Air Resources Board (CARB), which is responsible for establishing and enforcing emissions standards, maintains a comprehensive website of regulations, test procedures, interpretations and other documentation. This page provides additional notes designed to speed up your research. This is not a comprehensive guide.



Motor vehicle regulations are contained in the California Code of Regulations (CCR). Test procedures are incorporated into the CCR, but CARB publishes comprehensive, “clean“, consolidated test procedure documents which can be found in PDF format on RegNet Focus. The CCR is similar in format to the US Federal CFR and in contrast to the UNECE regulation, which publishes regulations and test procedures integrated into a single, standalone document.



A full list of regulations and test procedures can be found on the home page of RegNet Focus. We have taken the approach of tagging documents that are most important to manufacturers. LEV and ZEV-related regulations and test procedures can be found using filters (please see images below). Addition emissions regulations which fall outside of the LEV program may be tagged as well (See Summary View following this section).

Two and Three-wheeled Vehicles and Quadricycles: Special Notes

The Testing Procedure documents, Specifications for Fill Pipes and Openings of 1977 Through 2014 Motor Vehicle Fuel Tanks and Specifications for Fill Pipes and Openings of 2015 and Subsequent Motor Vehicle Fuel Tanks exempt motorcycles from Sections IV through VIII, which describe the fill pipe’s performance requirements and test methods, however, the fill pipe’s physical specifications must meet those referenced in Section III.   An on-road motorcycle is exempt from the fill pipe specifications if its evaporative certification level is 1.8 grams per SHED test or less.


Small Spark-Ignition Engines and Equipment Less Than 25 Horsepower’ Special Notes


Small SI Engines and Equipment regulations are covered in RegNet Focus but are not tagged. Engines fitting this category are typically power tools and power products.
