Forklift Fleet Labeling and Reporting Regulation effective June 30, 2017

Initial reporting is required by June 30, 2017.  Fleets acquired after June 30th have 60 days to report.   

In 2006, the California Air Resources Board (ARB) adopted, and later amended in 2010 and 2016, new regulations to reduce emissions from existing fleets operating large spark-ingnited (LSI) engine powered equipment. Only forklifts, floor scrubbers and sweepers, airport ground support equipment (GSE), and industrial tow tractors with LSI engines of 25 horsepower (19 kilowatt) or greater, and greater than 1.0 liter displacement, including electric equipment are subject to the regulation.  

What are the reporting and labeling requirements?

  • Report all equipment subject to a Fleet Average Emission Level (FAEL) beginning June 30, 2017 and until June 30, 2023;
  • Label of each piece of equipment subject to a FAEL beginning June 30, 2017 and until June 30, 2023; and
  • Maintain records until June 30, 2023

Equipment is reported into DOORS. DOORS is an on-line reporting system that has been used for many years by fleets that own and operate diesel off - road equipment.

ARB has expanded DOORS to include a portal for LSI equipment which may be accessed at:

If fleets are unable to access the on-line reporting tool, they should contact ARB by phone at 1-877-59-DOORS (1-877-593-6677), or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
