Public Hearing to Consider Proposed Amendments to the Airborne Toxic Control Measure for Stationary Compression Ignition Engines
Staff will propose amendments to the Airborne Toxic Control Measure for Stationary Compression Ignition Engines (ATCM) to more closely align the requirements in the ATCM with those in the federal Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression-Ignition Internal Combustion Engines that was promulgated on July 11, 2006, help clarify provisions in the ATCM, address new information, and remove provisions no longer needed.
Public Hearing to Consider Minor Amendments to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program in Response to the Inclusion of Diesel Vehicles in Smog Check (Assembly Bill 1488, Mendoza 2007)
Staff will present to the Board minor amendments to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) to mitigate the duplicative testing requirements resulting from the implementation of the statutory requirements of AB 1488 and the existing testing requirements of PSIP.
