The Registration Process

In order to obtain a PERP registration, the owner or operator of a portable engine or equipment unit must follow several steps.

In order to obtain a PERP registration, the owner or operator of a portable engine or equipment unit must:

  • submit completed application forms and the appropriate fees to CARB.

  • not operate the portable engine or equipment unit within South Coast AQMD jurisdiction until the registration has been issued by CARB (or a permit has been issued by South Coast AQMD).

  • comply with all registration conditions, requirements of the PERP regulation (available on the CARB website), and applicable South Coast AQMD rules once the registration has been issued.

Change of Ownership

Within 30 days of a change of ownership of a registered engine or equipment unit, the new owner shall submit a change of ownership application. During the 30-day period, the new owner is authorized to operate the registered engine or equipment unit. If an application is not received within 30 days, the engine or equipment unit may not operate, and the existing registration is not valid for the new owner until the application has been filed and all applicable fees have been paid. Registration will be reissued to the new owner after a complete application has been approved by the Executive Officer.


Identical Replacement

When a new portable engine or equipment unit is acquired to replace an identical existing registered unit, a new application is not needed.  Further, the new unit may be operated under the registration of the replaced unit. Except for TSE, the owner or operator is required to notify CARB in writing within 5 calendar days of replacing the registered engine or equipment unit with an identical replacement. Misrepresentation of engine or equipment unit information or the failure to meet the requirements of this regulation shall be deemed a violation.

For more information about obtaining a PERP registration, contact CARB at 916-324-5869 or visit their website.
