The Department proposes to amend 7 DE Admin. Code 1140 to update the adoption by reference of California’s Advance Clean Car II (ACC II) low emission vehicle and greenhouse gas standards and add requirements for zero emitting vehicles for model year 2026 and beyond.

This is one of five planned workshops. The others are set for Nov. 15, Nov. 16, Dec. 13 and Dec. 15.

View the Workshop Presentation.

The ACC II regulations will reduce criteria and greenhouse gas emissions from new light- and medium-duty vehicles beyond the 2025 model year as well as add the new requirements for zero emission vehicles.

These standards were adopted in 2010 and went into effect for model year 2014, and since the original adoption California has made changes necessary for automobile manufactures to comply. Section 177 of the Clean Air Act requires that Delaware standards must be “identical to the California standards.”

This regulatory amendment process started with DNREC Start Action Notice 2022-01. Learn more about the proposal on the Division of Air Quality Regulations and Plans Under Development page.

The Department will accept written comments on the proposal through Dec. 2, 2022. Comments can be made in person during the workshops or in writing by email or via USPS mail to the Division of Air Quality, 100 West Water Street, Suite 6A, Dover, DE 19904.
