Did you know adding an approved Emission Reduction Measure (ERM) means you can reduce your fees:

  1. Get advice on upgrading or retrofitting your non-road diesel engine. See “ERM Suppliers List” in next section for Metro Vancouver suppliers/installers with ERMs verified by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and/or the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
  2. Complete an ERM Application on the Non-Road Diesel Registration Website.
  3. Install the ERM on your machine.
  4. Email us at or call the Diesel Line on 604-451-6655 for any help along the way.
