A change in the 2003 regulation that will adopt the less stringent low-emission (LETRU) in-use standard is among the amendments, which in 2010 is the ultra-low-emission transport refrigeration units (ULETRU). CARB said that the decision to amend the regulations was due to the fact that LETRU is more cost efficient than ULETRU.
