Cal. Code Regs. Tit. 13, § 2450 - Purpose

Current through Register 2022 Notice Reg. No. 16, April 25, 2022

(a) These regulations in this Article establish a statewide program for the registration and regulation of portable engines and engine-associated equipment (portable engines and equipment units) as defined herein. Registration under this program allows portable engines and equipment units to operate throughout the State of California without authorization (except as specified herein) or permits from air quality management or air pollution control districts (districts). These regulations preempt districts from permitting, registering, or regulating portable engines and equipment units, including equipment necessary for the operation of a portable engine (e.g. fuel tanks), registered with the Executive Officer of the Air Resources Board except in the circumstances specified in the regulations.
(b) Registration under these regulations does not relieve any obligation under other applicable law.
