More Information


The existing Commercial Harbor Craft Regulation requires the majority of vessels with pre‑Tier 1 or Tier 1 engines to be repowered with engines meeting Tier 2 or Tier 3 standards. Staff assessments show that when the existing rule is fully implemented by 2023, Commercial Harbor Craft will continue to adversely impact air quality, particularly near port communities. As a result, staff proposed amendments on September 21, 2021, that were initially heard by the Board in November 2021. The final hearing on the Proposed Amendments is anticipated in Spring 2022.


If you have questions about the webinar please contact Aaron Bali, Air Resources Engineer, or David Quiros, Freight Technology Section Manager.
