Cleaire

As of January 26, 2010

Using the Verification Procedure, Warranty and In-Use Compliance Requirements for In-Use Strategies to Control Emissions from Diesel Engines, the Air Resources Board (ARB) conditionally verified the Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls (Cleaire) Horizon Electric Particulate Filter (Horizon) for use with off-road diesel engines on January 26, 2007.  As stated in the conditional verification letter RAS-07-02, the Horizon system was conditionally verified for a period not to exceed three years from the date of the letter. 

Because this period of time has elapsed, and Cleaire has not yet satisfied all remaining requirements for obtaining full verification, ARB now therefore suspends the verification of the Horizon system for off-road applications.  As of January 27, 2010, the Horizon system may not be sold, installed, or offered for sale as a verified system for any off-road applications until such time as ARB determines that Cleaire has satisfactorily completed all remaining requirements for full verification.
