On-Road Vehicle and Engine Emission Regulations (SOR/2003-2)

Regulations are current to 2015-08-04 and last amended on 2015-07-16. Previous Versions

  •  (1) A company may elect not to calculate an average evaporative emission value for a fleet of a specific model year if every vehicle in that fleet conforms to a family emission limit for an evaporative emission family and that family emission limit is equal to or less than the applicable fleet average evaporative emission standard for the model year in question referred to in section 24.10.

  • (2) For the purposes of section 26.3, subparagraph 32(2)(d)(ii) and paragraph 37(1)(c), the average evaporative emission value in respect of a fleet of a model year for which a company makes an election under subsection (1) shall be the fleet average evaporative emission standard applicable to the fleet for which the election was made.

  • SOR/2015-186, s. 30.

Emission Credits

[SOR/2015-186, s. 31]

NOX Emission Credits

[SOR/2015-186, s. 31]
  •  (1) For the purposes of subparagraph 162(1)(b)(i) of the Act, a company shall obtain NOX emission credits for its fleets of the 2017 and earlier model years if the average NOX value in respect of a fleet of a specific model year is lower than the fleet average NOX standard for the model year in question and the company reports the credits in its end of model year report.

  • (2) NOx emission credits, expressed in units of vehicle-grams per mile, shall be calculated using the following formula, rounding the result to the nearest whole number:

    (A - B) x C

    where

    A 
    is the fleet average NOx standard
    B 
    is the average NOx value in respect of the fleet, and
    C 
    is the total number of vehicles in the fleet.
  • (3) The NOx emission credits for a specific model year are credited on the last day of that model year.

  • SOR/2015-186, s. 32.

NMOG + NOX Emission Credits

  •  (1) For the purposes of subparagraph 162(1)(b)(i) of the Act, a company shall obtain NMOG + NOX emission credits for its fleets of the 2017 and later model years if the average NMOG + NOX value in respect of a fleet of a specific model year is lower than the fleet average NMOG + NOX standard for the model year in question and the company reports the credits in its end of model year report.

  • (2) NMOG + NOX emission credits, expressed in units of vehicle-grams per mile, shall be calculated using the following formula, rounding the result to the nearest whole number:

    (A – B) × C

    where

    A 
    is the fleet average NMOG + NOX standard;
    B 
    is the average NMOG + NOX value in respect of the fleet; and
    C 
    is the total number of vehicles in the fleet.
  • (3) The NMOG + NOX emission credits for a specific model year are credited on the last day of the model year in question.

  • SOR/2015-186, s. 33.

Cold NMHC Emission Credits

  •  (1) For the purposes of subparagraph 162(1)(b)(i) of the Act, a company shall obtain cold NMHC emission credits for its fleets of the 2017 and later model years if the average cold NMHC value in respect of a fleet of a specific model year is lower than the fleet average cold NMHC standard for the model year in question and the company reports the credits in its end of model year report.

  • (2) Cold NMHC emission credits, expressed in units of vehicle-grams per mile, shall be calculated using the following formula, rounding the result to the nearest whole number:

    (A – B) × C

    where

    A 
    is the fleet average cold NMHC standard;
    B 
    is the average cold NMHC value in respect of the fleet; and
    C 
    is the total number of vehicles in the fleet.
  • (3) The cold NMHC emission credits for a specific model year are credited on the last day of the model year in question.

  • SOR/2015-186, s. 33.
