Experienced CARB Non-Compliance Resolution Services

Minimize the Impact of CARB Violation Penalties

Dealing with a non-compliance violation is a stressful process. You want to handle the problem with the smallest possible impact on your business. Successful CARB non-compliance resolution requires industry knowledge and connections. Be CARB Compliant has both!

A CARB Violation Doesn’t Need to Interrupt Your Work

Receiving a CARB violation notice can have a heavy impact on your livelihood. Penalties can include annual fines and DMV registration holds. If you can’t get your equipment on the road or out in the field, you may have to cancel orders or delay projects.

Ignoring the violation will just make things worse. CARB penalties are supposed to remove the financial benefits of non-compliance, so fines will increase if you wait to resolve the issue.

If CARB sends you a violation notice, you will have the opportunity to discuss the issue. Our non-compliance resolution team can be a big help in this case. We understand regulations and policies, and we will use that knowledge to argue on your behalf. In many cases, CARB compliance fines can be waived or significantly reduced.

Factors in Assessing CARB Violation Penalties

While the purpose of CARB is to minimize air pollution, the state also knows the economic importance of keeping companies and operators that use diesel engines in operation. Our team understands and works with the leeway built into CARB regulations. Some of the factors the state will consider include:

Size of the Violation

The size of the penalty can depend on the amount of pollution produced, an important consideration if you have a large fleet.

Duration of the Violation

Penalties increase the longer you wait to address them. Ignoring CARB notices is a costly decision.

Compliance History

With our digital reporting records, we can demonstrate that you have worked to stay in CARB compliance in the past.

Efforts Towards Compliance

Showing that you are working towards compliance can reduce penalties.


CARB rewards cooperation with auditing procedures. Because we can share your records quickly, we can help you in this respect.

Financial Burden

CARB can negotiate your financial penalties if you can show that they would create a financial burden.
