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 obtain early action credits in respect of its fleet that is composed of all of its Class 2B vehicles or all of its Class 3 vehicles of the 2016 or 2017 model year if the average NMOG + NOX value in respect of a fleet of the model year in question is lower than the applicable fleet average NMOG + NOX standard for the model year in question set out in Table 4 of section 1816 of Title 40, chapter I, subchapter C, part 86, subpart S, of the CFR and the company reports the credits in its 2018 end of model year report.

  • (2) Early action credits obtained in respect of the fleet are calculated in accordance with subsection 26.1(2).

  • (3) Early action credits obtained for the 2016 and 2017 model years are credited on the day on which the company’s 2018 end of model year report is submitted.

  • (4) Early action credits obtained for the 2016 and 2017 model years may be used as of the 2018 model year but only in respect of a fleet that is composed of all of the company’s Class 2B vehicles or all of its Class 3 vehicles of any of the five model years after the model year in respect of which the credits were credited, after which the credits are no longer valid.

  • SOR/2015-186, s. 33.

Emission Deficit

  •  (1) Subject to subsection (2), NOX, NMOG + NOX, cold NMHC or evaporative emission credits, as the case may be, obtained in respect of a fleet of a specific model year shall be used by the company to offset any NOX, NMOG + NOX, cold NMHC or evaporative emission deficit, as the case may be, referred to in section 28, and any remaining credits may be used to offset a future deficit or, except in the case of early action credits, may be transferred to another company.

  • (2) NOX emission credits obtained in respect of a fleet of a specific model year may only be used to offset a NOX emission deficit for the 2017 model year or an earlier model year.

  • SOR/2015-186, s. 33.

 Subject to section 31 or 31.1, if a company’s average NOX, NMOG + NOX, cold NMHC or evaporative emission value, as the case may be, in respect of a fleet of a specific model year is higher than the fleet average NOX, NMOG + NOX, cold NMHC or evaporative emission standard for the model year in question, the company shall calculate the value of the NOX, NMOG + NOX, cold NMHC or evaporative emission deficit incurred in that model year using the formula set out in subsection 26(2), 26.1(2), 26.2(2) or 26.3(2), as the case may be.

  • SOR/2006-268, s. 7;
  • SOR/2015-186, s. 33.
  •  (1) Subject to subsection 27(2), a company shall offset a NOX emission deficit no later than the date on which the company submits the end of model year report for the third model year after the model year in which the deficit was incurred.

  • (2) Subject to subsection (3), a company may offset a NOx emission deficit with an equivalent number of NOx emission credits obtained in accordance with section 26 or obtained from another company.

  • (3) If any part of a NOx emission deficit for a specific model year is outstanding following the submission of the end of model year report for the second model year after the model year in which the deficit was incurred, the number of NOx emission credits required to offset that outstanding deficit in the next model year is 120% of the deficit.

  • SOR/2015-186, s. 34.
