Public Workshop on Draft Regulatory Language for the Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a series of virtual public workshops to discuss the proposed Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) regulation. ACF rulemaking is part of a comprehensive strategy to achieve a zero-emission truck and bus fleet by 2045 everywhere feasible and significantly earlier for market segments such as last mile delivery, public fleets, and drayage applications.

Three focused workshops have been scheduled to provide an overview of the updated draft rulemaking language and to solicit feedback from affected stakeholders. The first workshop (May 2, 2022) will focus on high-priority and federal fleets including new proposed requirements to include light-duty last-mile package delivery vehicles for affected fleets and the 100 percent zero-emission vehicle sales requirement. The second workshop (May 4, 2022) will focus on proposed requirements for state and local government fleets. Finally, the third workshop (May 6, 2022) will focus on proposed requirements for drayage trucks.

The three workshops will be held via Zoom at the following times. These meetings will be recorded and made available on the Advanced Clean Fleets website. Interested parties must register to participate.

More Information


CARB staff previously held a series of public workshop meetings in October to November of 2021 to receive feedback and suggestions on the initial draft of the proposed ACF rulemaking language and inventory. These workshops were followed by a series of workgroup meetings from December 2021 to March 2022 to discuss infrastructure.

Achieving California’s long-term air quality, climate, and public health goals will require a transition from the conventional combustion technologies to zero-emission everywhere feasible and near-zero-emission powered by clean, low-carbon renewable fuels everywhere else. Promoting the development and use of zero-emission trucks contributes to the goals set by the Governor’s Executive Order N-79-20 and the Sustainable Freight Action Plan, which will help achieve emission reductions as outlined in the State Implementation Plan, Senate Bill (SB) 350 (de León, Chapter 547, Statutes of 2015), Assembly Bill 32 (Nuñez, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006), and SB 32 (Pavley, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2016). This effort is part of a broader strategy to increase clean, affordable transportation options such as zero-emission technologies, innovative methods to improve freight activity, and efficiency of transportation systems in California.
