The California Air Resources Board has issued an Enforcement Notice to provide further guidance on reporting and enforcement during the transition period from January 1, 2023, through thirty (30) days after the date the U.S. EPA publishes its issuance of authorization for the 2020 Regulation in the Federal Register (referred to in this Notice as the “transition period”). As described in more detail below, during the transition period, all vessel operators and terminal operators under the 2020 Regulation may choose one of two enforcement path options and must submit the choice to CARB by May 1, 2023. The two enforcement path options are as follows: (1) achieving the per-visit emission reduction provisions of the 2020 Regulation, or (2) achieving the 80 percent emission or power reduction provisions set forth in the 2007 Regulation.
