Lawsuit against CARB withdrawn

Lawsuit against CARB withdrawn

The Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA), which represents engines companies and heavy-duty trucks, integrated by Paccar, Caterpillar, Daimler, Truck Cummins among others, dropped their lawsuit regarding the implementation of emission standards filed against CARB (California Air Resources Board).

The lawsuit was filed in may in response for CARB adoption of Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Omnibus Regulation, which will have very rigorous emission standards and requirements for new vehicles sold in California, starting to be applied from 2024.

Although the group had filled this lawsuit, it was dropped because it was causing conflicts between the members of the association. Many members of the association made publicly statements that they were against the litigation.

The litigation started with the intention of dealing with the short lead time and not the content of the regulation itself. Many members of the association worried that the lawsuit would delay or affect the environmental efforts that many of them fight for.

in Aug.11 EMA stated that they dropped the lawsuit and affirmed that their intention was to assure that the California regulators provided to manufacturers a period of time of, at least, four years of anticipation instead of two, before implementing new heavy-duty engine emission standards.
