Cummins Inc. announced that the company is formally reviewing its emissions certification and compliance process for its pickup truck applications.

Following conversations with the U.S. EPA and CARB regarding certification for the engines in the 2019 RAM 2500 and 3500 trucks, the company made the decision to review its certification process and compliance with emissions standards. Cummins said the review was being conducted with external advisors to ensure the certification process for Cummins pickup truck applications is consistent with its internal policies, engineering standards and applicable laws.

Cummins has voluntarily disclosed the review to our regulators and other agencies and will cooperate with them to ensure a complete and thorough review and implement recommendations for improvement.

A Cummins spokesman indicated that the company had ongoing discussions with the agencies during the certification process of the Ram 2500 and 3500 engines “and made the decision to formally review our internal certification process based on these conversations.  And we also decided to disclose it to be as transparent as possible.

“As always, we are committed to doing the right thing andwe take pride in our efforts to develop leading products for customers that also contribute to lower emissions.”
