Turnover ExemptionsBased on the Regulation as of September 7, 2012
The regulation provides both permanent and temporary exemptions from Turnover.
Up to 15% of Large and Medium fleets hp is permanently exempt from Turnover if retrofit with PM VDEDCS by Jan 1, 2013. The PM VDECS must be Level 2 or Level 3, and the highest efficiency PM VDECS available at the time of ordering.
The following temporarily exemptions apply to all fleet sizes and exempt equipment from Turnover for the period as specified.
Equipment less than 10 years old is exempt from turnover for 10 years. So for example if you purchase a 2010 model year loader that equipment would not be subject to Turnover until Jan 1, 2020.
Equipment retrofit with a PM VDECS is exempt from Turnover for six years from the date of installation. The PM VDECS must be Level 2 or Level 3, and the highest efficiency PM VDECS available at the time of ordering.
Small fleets are afforded one additional exemption from Turnover.
