Background

ARBís regulation for In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicles (Off-Road regulation) became effective under California law on June 15, 2008. This regulation is intended to reduce harmful emissions from diesel powered construction and mining vehicles operating in California. Fleets were required to initially report their off-road diesel vehicles to ARB in 2009 via the Diesel Off-road On-line Reporting System (DOORS). In addition, fleet owners are subject to restrictions on unnecessary idling and will be subject to accelerated replacement/repower requirements. In December 2011, major amendments to the Off-Road regulation, which include delaying the first compliance date to no earlier than January 1, 2014, became effective.

If you have any questions regarding off-road reporting, please contact the DOORS hotline at (877) 59-DOORS (877-593-6677) or by email at doors@arb.ca.gov. For further information on ARBís diesel vehicle and equipment regulations, please call the California Air Resources Board Diesel Hotline at 866-6DIESEL (866-634-3735).
