If you drive a CMV Into California your truck must be on the state Registry by December 31st.

Hello PMTC Members and friends,

California is getting ready to implement another environmentally focused truck regulation.

The rule is called the Clean Truck Check (CTC), and according to a fact sheet from the California Air Resources Board (CARB), it is the rechristening of what had been known as the Heavy-Duty Inspection and Maintenance regulation. One significant difference, however, is that it applies to all trucks that ever operate in California, not just those based in the state. If you operate into California, you need to register your vehicle with the state prior to December 31st. See link below for full details.
