Heavy-duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations

Version of section 63 from 2013-02-22 to 2015-07-15:

Marginal note:Notice of defect
  •  (1) The notice of defect referred to in subsections 157(1) and (4) of the Act must be given in writing and must contain the information set out in subsection 45(1) of the On-Road Vehicle and Engine Emission Regulations.

  • Marginal note:Reports

    (2) In respect of a notice of defect issued under these Regulations, a company must comply with subsections 45(2) and (3) of the On-Road Vehicle and Engine Emission Regulations.

  • Marginal note:Applicable standard

    (3) For the application of section 157 of the Act, the CO2 emission standard that applies

    • (a) to a Class 2B and Class 3 heavy-duty vehicle and cab-complete vehicle — excluding those referred to in the definition vocational vehicle in subsection 1(1) — or to a spark-ignition engine that conforms to the alternative CO2 emission standard referred to in section 25, is the product of 1.1 multiplied by the CO2 emission value for that vehicle configuration, rounded to the nearest 0.1 gram per mile;

    • (b) to a vocational vehicle is the result of the GEM computer simulation model using the parameters specified in subsection 26(2);

    • (c) to a tractor — other than a low-roof or mid-roof tractor referred to in subsection 27(5) — is the result of the GEM computer simulation model using the parameters specified in subsection 27(2), except that the coefficient of aerodynamic drag may originate from a bin for which the coefficient of aerodynamic drag is higher than that of the bin of the subject vehicle;

    • (d) to a low-roof or mid-roof tractor referred to in subsection 27(5), is the result of the GEM computer simulation model using the parameters specified in subsection 27(2);

    • (e) to a heavy-duty engine — other than an engine referred to in paragraphs (f) and (g) — is the product of 1.03 multiplied by the applicable standard set out in section 30 for that engine, or in the case of an engine that is grouped into a fleet referred to in section 18, the product of 1.03 multiplied by the deteriorated emission level applicable to the fleet;

    • (f) to a heavy-duty engine of the 2014 to 2016 model years that conforms to the alternative CO2 emission standard referred to in subsection 31(1), is the product of 1.03 multiplied by the alternative CO2 emission standard; and

    • (g) to a heavy-duty engine of the 2013 to 2016 model years that conforms to the alternative CO2 emission standard referred to in subsection 31(2), is the product of 1.03 multiplied by the alternative CO2 emission standard.
