Adopted Part 218, Emission Standards for Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Engines

The Department is adopting amendments to 6 NYCRR Part 218 and 6 NYCRR Section 200.9 to incorporate California's latest greenhouse gas (GHG) standards, which were adopted by California on December 12, 2018, into New York's existing low emission vehicle (LEV) program. The adopted amendment clarifies the deemed to comply provision for model years 2021-2025, which allows vehicle manufacturers to demonstrate compliance with federal GHG standards in lieu of California's more stringent standards. The deemed to comply provision is being revised in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's stated intent to freeze and roll back existing GHG standards for model years 2021-2025. Further, the Department will submit the revisions to Part 218 and Section 200.9 to EPA as a revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for New York State.
