Rental equipment is required to meet the same permitting or registration requirements as non-rental equipment, except that when authorized by the Air Resources Board, local district notification is not required for rental equipment of 200 HP or less. The engine and associated equipment should be permitted or registered by the rental company.
If you rent portable equipment you should receive a copy of the registration certificate, including requirements of registration (e.g., the conditions of registration and operation), from the rental company and a certification label should be affixed to the equipment. You share responsibility with the rental company for making sure the equipment is properly permitted or registered prior to your operating the equipment. If the District finds that a registration is not on-hand and/or the equipment sticker showing that the equipment is properly registered, the District may find the renter or the rental company, or both, to be in violation of program requirements.
