PART 2Stationary Spark-ignition Engines (continued)

Engine Management (continued)

Marginal note:Operation and maintenance

  •  (1) The recommendations of the manufacturer concerning the operation and maintenance of the systems and components referred to in subsection (2) that are related to an engine must be treated as requirements and be complied with,

    • (a) in respect of an engine that is subject to a NOx emission intensity limit referred to in any of sections 54, 55 and 57, by a responsible person for the engine;

    • (b) in respect of an engine that is subject to a NOx emission intensity limit referred to in section 58 or 59, by the responsible person who has established the group to which the engine belongs; and

    • (c) in respect of an engine that belongs to a subgroup, other than a pre-existing engine that has been assigned a default NOx emission value referred to in subparagraph 66(2)(a)(ii) or paragraph 66(2)(b) or (c), by the responsible person who has established the group to which the engine belongs.

  • Marginal note:Systems and components

    (2) The following are the systems and components:

    • (a) the ignition system, including spark plugs;

    • (b) the air-fuel ratio management system;

    • (c) the NOx, O2 and lambda sensors;

    • (d) the lubrication system, including the oil and oil filters;

    • (e) the air intake filtration system; and

    • (f) the after-treatment control device.

  • Marginal note:No obligation to comply

    (3) Despite subsection (1), no recommendation referred to in that subsection need be treated as a requirement and complied with by the responsible person described in that subsection if they have a record that establishes that without that compliance the NOx emission intensity of the engine is unlikely to exceed the following limit or value:

    • (a) the applicable NOx emission intensity limit referred to in sections 54, 55, 57 and 58;

    • (b) in respect of an engine that belongs to the subset referred to in subsection 59(1), the applicable NOx emission intensity limit referred to in that subsection; and

    • (c) in respect of an engine that belongs to a subgroup, the NOx emission value that is assigned to the engine under

      • (i) subsection 66(1), if that emission value is 210 ppmvd15% or 4 g/kWh, or

      • (ii) subsection 67(1).

Marginal note:Air-fuel ratio

 The responsible person described in subsection 95(1) must verify, maintain and adjust the air-fuel ratio of the engine so as to ensure that its NOx emission intensity, during the diverse ambient conditions anticipated during a year, does not exceed the following limit or value:

  • (a) the applicable NOx emission intensity limit referred to in sections 54, 55, 57 and 58;

  • (b) in respect of an engine that belongs to the subset referred to in subsection 59(1), the applicable NOx emission intensity limit referred to in that subsection; and

  • (c) in respect of an engine that belongs to a subgroup, the NOx emission value assigned to the engine under

    • (i) subsection 66(1), if that emission value is 210 ppmvd15% or 4 g/kWh, or

    • (ii) subsection 67(1).

Registry, Reporting and Recording of Information

Marginal note:Engine registry

  •  (1) The Minister is to establish an engine registry in order to carry out the purpose of this Part by facilitating the provision to the Minister of information that is

    • (a) necessary to know whether this Part applies in respect of an engine; and

    • (b) related to the requirements referred to in section 60 that are imposed on engines that belong to a subgroup.

  • Marginal note:Regular-use and low-use engines

    (2) The following engines must be registered in the engine registry:

    • (a) a modern engine with a rated brake power of at least 75 kW that is regular-use or low-use; and

    • (b) a pre-existing engine with a rated brake power of at least 250 kW that is regular-use or low-use.

  • Marginal note:Registration date — engines in group

    (3) A responsible person for a regular-use engine that they have designated as belonging to their group must register the engine on or before

    • (a) January 1, 2019, if the designation occurs before that date; and

    • (b) July 1 of the year that follows the year during which the engine is designated as belonging to the group, if the designation occurs on or after January 1, 2019.

  • Marginal note:Registration date — engines not in group

    (4) An engine referred to in subsection (2) that does not belong to a group must be registered on or before

    • (a) for a pre-existing engine, the later of

      • (i) January 1, 2019, and

      • (ii) July 1 of the year that follows the first year during which there is a responsible person for the engine, and

    • (b) for a modern engine, July 1 of the year that follows the first year during which there is a responsible person for the engine.

  • Marginal note:Re-registration

    (5) An engine that has been registered in accordance with subsection (4) — or re-registered under this subsection — must be re-registered on or before July 1 of the year that follows the last year during which there remains at least one responsible person for the engine who has registered or re-registered the engine.

  • Marginal note:Registration

    (6) The registration occurs when the Minister is provided with the information for inclusion in the engine registry in respect of the engine that is set out in Schedule 9.

Marginal note:Change of information — engine registry

  •  (1) If there is a change in the information provided to the Minister for inclusion in the engine registry in respect of an engine or a replacement unit, the Minister must be provided with the updated information

    • (a) within 30 days after the place where a record is kept is changed, if the updated information involves a change in the place where a record is kept; and

    • (b) on or before July 1 of the year that follows the year during which the change occurred but before a compliance report in respect of that year is provided to the Minister, in any other case.

  • Marginal note:Responsible person

    (2) The updated information must be provided by

    • (a) the responsible person referred to in subsection 97(3), if the updated information is in respect of an engine referred to in that subsection or in respect of a replacement unit referred to in subsection 64(4); or

    • (b) a responsible person who has registered or re-registered the engine in the engine registry in accordance with subsection 97(4) or (5), if the updated information is in respect of an engine referred to in that subsection.

Marginal note:Compliance reports

  •  (1) A compliance report must, on or before July 1 of a year, be provided that contains the information set out in Schedule 10 in respect of the preceding year to the Minister in respect of

    • (a) an engine or replacement unit that, during the preceding year, belongs to a subgroup; or

    • (b) an engine that, during the preceding year,

      • (i) is subject to a NOx emission intensity limit,

      • (ii) is low-use; or

      • (iii) combusts fuel for a period referred to in section 49.

  • Marginal note:Responsible person

    (2) The compliance report must be provided by the responsible person for the engine or replacement unit who

    • (a) provided updated information in accordance with paragraph 98(2)(a) in respect of an engine or replacement unit referred to in that paragraph, if that updated information was provided;

    • (b) provided updated information in accordance with paragraph 98(2)(b) in respect of an engine referred to in that paragraph, if that updated information was provided; or

    • (c) registered the engine in the engine registry in accordance with subsection 97((3) or (4) or re-registered it in the engine registry in accordance with subsection 97(5), in any other case.
