Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines (Final)
Jul. 7, 2016
EPA is finalizing these amendments to allow manufacturers to design the engines so that operators can temporarily override performance inducements related to the emission control system for stationary CI internal combustion engines. The amendments apply to engines operating during emergency situations where the operation of the engine or equipment is needed to protect human life, and to require compliance with Tier 1 emission standards during such emergencies. The EPA is also amending the standards of performance for certain stationary CI internal combustion engines located in remote areas of Alaska. This final rule is effective on 6 September 2016.
