The article presents updates from major truck manufacturers on the emission regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the U.S. The regulation required trucks built January 1, 2009 or later to revise exhaust systems, which will have some effect on truck body and equipment installations and on truck production schedules for new models. The updates were discussed in the Annual Truck Product Conference held on September 22-23, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency in Dearborn, Michigan.
