EPA is preparing to convene a Small Business Advocacy Review panel to provide input and recommendations for its upcoming proposed rule on Medium- and Heavy-Duty Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standard. EPA seeks self-nominations directly from the small entities that may be subject to the rule requirements. Entities representing small entities may also serve. Nominations are requested by April 16, 2014.
EPA is working jointly with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), which expects to propose coordinated fuel efficiency standards, and in consultation with the California Air Resources Board (ARB). EPA and NHTSA standards would reduce GHG emissions and fuel consumption through the application of advanced, cost-effective technologies. This action could affect manufacturers of a wide range of on-road vehicles, from semi-trucks and their trailers to the largest pickup trucks and vans, along with all types and sizes of work trucks and buses. This action would not regulate truck operators or truck dealers.
