The #1 question we’ve been asked by our customers is, “Can you handle the ROAR reporting?” And the answer is, “Yes.”
What is ROAR? ROAR is a Responsible Official Affirmation of Reporting (ROAR), is a form which is signed by a responsible official or designee stating that In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation (Off-Road Regulation) is accurate and that the fleet is in compliance with the Off-Road Regulation.
Who Needs to submit a ROAR form? The new regulations are that ALL-FLEET sizes are required to comply.
When is a ROAR due? The regulations is that all vehicles that were in fleet as of December 31st of the prior year, needs to file by March 1st of the following year. So for example a ROAR is due by March 1, 2019 for the fleet as it was on December 31, 2012 (citation).
What’s required to fulfill my annual reporting requirements? Prior to submitting a ROAR, a fleet must verify that their reported information is accurate as of the prior December 31st. Any changes to the fleet that have not been reported during the calendar year, such as Verified Diesel Emission Control Strategy (VDECS) installations or removals and engine repowers, must be
reported as part of the annual reporting requirements. (citation).
To complete annual reporting fleets must:
- Log into DOORS on or after January 1, 2018, and report all changes made to
the fleet in 2017, including updated contact information.
- Enter engine hour meter readings for the 2017 calendar year on the “Low-Use”
- Report engine hour meter readings for vehicles used for agricultural operations
51-99% of the time [hardcopy form MSCD ISB-145 (REV 4/14)].
- Submit the Responsible Official Affirmation of Reporting (ROAR) form.
How can West Coast Equipment help? We can do everything except sign the document. As the responsible party, you or your designee must sign.
