Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is proposing new rules at N.J.A.C. 7:27-32, Diesel Retrofit Program, and amendments to N.J.A.C. 7:27-14, Control and Prohibition of Air Pollution from Diesel-Powered Motor Vehicles, 7:27A-3.10(m), Air Administrative Procedures and Penalties, and 7:27B-4, Air Test Method 4: Testing Procedures for Diesel-Powered Motor Vehicles.

The proposed new rules will require the installation of closed crankcase ventilation systems (CCVS) or tailpipe retrofit devices on certain diesel-powered vehicles and equipment, including school buses, solid waste collection vehicles, publicly owned commercial buses, privately-owned commercial buses, and publicly owned on-road vehicles and off-road equipment.

The Department is jointly proposing rules with the Motor Vehicle Commission regarding the installation of CCVS and the training of persons who inspect a vehicle pursuant to the periodic or roadside inspection program or who repair any vehicle because it failed emissions testing under those inspection programs. The Department is jointly proposing rules with the State Treasurer regarding reimbursement of the cost of the purchase and installation of the required CCVS and retrofit devices.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated December 18, 2006.  A copy of the proposal is available from the Department’s web site(PDF).
