Geotab received an executive order from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) exempting Geotab’s aftermarket solutions from CARB’s emissions anti-tampering regulations in the California market. Geotab said this is the only CARB-compliant continuously connected fleet management solution available at this time.
CARB prohibits the marketing, installation, or sale of any part that makes changes to the original design or performance of the emissions controls system, which includes the on-board diagnostic (OBD) system that Geotab’s GO device and many other telematics companies’ devices use to collect data from vehicles. Failure to comply with the regulation can lead to potential fines of up to $42,000 per vehicle.
GO Telematics Kit
Geotab said its GO Telematics Kit received the executive order following rigorous testing by CARB. The company said it collaborated closely with CARB to ensure its solutions meet CARB’s strict compliance standards, making its solution the only legally compliant one available to the California market at this time.
"California consistently leads the charge in pioneering effective air and climate initiatives, setting the standard for sustainability and emissions standards across the nation. Our CARB-compliant solutions empower fleets to enhance sustainability, productivity, and safety, aligned with California's leadership efforts, making us the trusted partner for quality data insights,” said Sabina Martin, associate vice president, product management at Geotab.
