EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AS36 Publication ID: Spring 2015 
Title: Amendments Related to: Tier 3 Motor Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards, Nonroad Engine, Equipment, and Fuel Programs, and MARPOL Annex VI Implementation 

EPA has taken final action on three sets of amendments. First, EPA made a variety of corrections to the Tier 3 motor vehicle emission and fuel standards. These changes generally correct or clarify various provisions from the Tier 3 rule without expanding the Tier 3 program or otherwise making any substantive changes to what was described in the April 2014 final rule. Second, EPA revised the test procedures and compliance provisions for nonroad spark-ignition engines at or below 19 kW (and for the corresponding nonroad equipment) to conform to current practices. The changes to evaporative emission test procedures also apply to some degree to other types of nonroad equipment powered by volatile liquid fuels. Third, we revised the regulations to more carefully align with current requirements that apply to marine vessels with diesel engines as specified under MARPOL annex VI.
