Public Workgroup on Draft Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation Provisions

The California Air Resources Board invites you to participate in a virtual public workgroup to discuss how to improve draft provisions for allowing exemptions and extensions of the draft Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) regulation for High-Priority Fleets, Federal Fleets, and State and Local Government Fleets.

This workgroup meeting will focus on what zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) models and configurations are available and how to improve draft provisions intended to address situations when ZEVs are not available in the needed configuration or if available ZEVs are not suitable for a particular fleet’s daily duty-cycle at the time of purchase. Discussion topics will include how to identify ZEVs that are not available, how to use the ZEV unavailability exemption, how to report backup vehicles, how to report and claim a vehicle delivery delay extension, how to claim an emergency response or mutual aid exemption, and how to apply for an infrastructure construction delay extension.

The workgroup will be held via Zoom at the following time. Interested parties must register to participate.

Date:                July 26, 2022
Time:                09:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)
Location:          Zoom


Meeting materials will be made available in advance of the workgroup meeting and recordings of the meeting will be available on the Advanced Clean Fleets Meetings & Events website. Draft regulation language was made available during the previous series of workshop meetings held in May 2022.


The draft ACF regulation 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.

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 will contribute to the goals set by the Governor’s Executive Order N-79-20 and the Sustainable Freight Action Plan and 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.
