Or. Admin. R. 340-242-0110 - What If an Employer Does Not Meet the Target Auto Trip Rate?

(1) An employer with an approved plan who has fully implemented its plan yet has not achieved its target auto trip rate by the target compliance date, or does not maintain its target rate on biennial basis, must submit a revised plan within 60 days following the target compliance date in any given year. If an employer has not fully implemented its plan, the employer is subject to an enforcement action by the Department.
(2) An employer participating in an equivalent commute trip reduction program who does not achieve its target auto trip rate by the target compliance date must demonstrate that a good faith effort was made to achieve the target rate. Requirements for documenting good faith effort are described in 340-242-0180. The employer must also submit a trip reduction plan within 60 days following the target compliance date. If an employer cannot demonstrate that a good faith effort was made, the employer is subject to an enforcement action by the Department.
(3) An employer will not be required to submit further plan revisions to its initial plan if, after fully implementing two revisions, the target auto trip rate is not reached. The employer must maintain strategies identified in its plan, or revisions to that plan, that resulted in improvements to the auto trip rate.

NOTE: This rule is included in the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan as adopted by the Environmental Quality Commission under OAR 340-200-0040.
