Diesel Engine Inventory and Compliance Plan Submittal
The Air Quality Committee alerts all SCAP members that under the Air Toxics Control Measure
(ATCM) for Stationary Diesel Engines adopted by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) last year,
all engine owners and operators of stationary diesel engines are required to submit certain diesel engine
information to their local air district by July 1, 2005.
Along with this information, a compliance plan outlining how each facility with diesel engines will
comply with the ATCM must be submitted six (6) months before the first compliance date for the facility.
For 1989 and older model year prime engines, the compliance plan is also due on July 1, 2005.
For all agencies EXCEPT those within the South Coast Air Quality Management District, you can
find information (ATCM, fact sheet, submittal form) pertaining to these CARB requirements by going to:
In order to determine the requirements for your engines, find the category in the ATCM that pertains
to your engines. The interactive form on the website allows you to input engine information into the form
and submit it electronically to your local air district. The compliance plan must be submitted separately
from this form.
For agencies WITHIN the SCAQMD service area, the District has adopted Rule 1470 that
incorporates the requirements of CARB’s ATCM; however, the Rule has a few different requirements
(allowable distance from schools, engine reporting requirements) than the ATCM. The Rule can be
viewed at: http://www.aqmd.gov/rules/reg/reg14/r1470.pdf. Section (d) [page 1470-31] outlines the
reporting requirements for this Rule.
If you have any questions on these requirements, please call Air Quality Committee Chair Dan
McGivney at (951) 928-3777 x6329 or Committee member Frank Caponi, LACSD at (562) 699-7411
