Verified Technologies for SmartWay and Clean Diesel

Evaluation for SmartWay Verification of Aerodynamic Devices

Follow these steps for the evaluation part of the verification process:

Number OneData analysis and interpretation.

EPA will review the submitted data, test reports, and other related materials to determine whether the device performance is suitable for verification.

                NOTE: This step is most critical and may take a few weeks to complete.

Number 2 Notice of Verification.

If all data and supporting documentation are acceptable, SmartWay will issue an official Verification Letter. This letter is legally binding and serves as the main indicator of a technology’s verified status.

Number 3 Device added to the Verified Devices List

Once the device is verified, EPA will inform the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and add it to the Verified Devices List.

"" Changes in SmartWay Verified Devices.

Any changes to the device:
  • Must be documented and reported to EPA by emailing; and
  • May require additional testing or a separate verification.
