California Leads, States Follow on Zero-Emission Rules for MD, HD Trucks

February 8, 2022

“As California goes, so goes the nation,” rings true when it comes to the topic of clean energy standards and emissions regulations. After one of the most influential public entities, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) passed the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) Regulation in June of 2020, five more states have followed suit and adopted ACT Regulations of their own just in 2021 alone.

The five states that have adopted ACT Regulations this past year are:

  • Oregon – Effective starting with model year (MY) 2025 for operators that have five or more medium- and heavy-duty trucks and gross annual revenues of more than $50 million in 2021; includes a one-time fleet reporting requirement, due no later than June 30, 2022.
  • Washington – Effective starting with MY 2025; does not include a large entity fleet reporting requirement.
  • New Jersey – Effective starting with MY 2025 for operators that have one or more vehicles over 8,500 GVWR and gross annual revenues of more than $50 million in 2021; includes a one-time fleet reporting requirement due no later than April 1, 2023.
  • New York – Effective starting with MY 2025 for operators that have one or more medium- and heavy-duty trucks and gross annual revenues of more than $50 million in 2021; includes a one-time fleet reporting requirement, due no later than April 1, 2023.
