In 2000, EPA began the Voluntary Diesel Retrofit Program in response to the widely accepted need to reduce diesel emissions from the existing fleet of nearly 11 million diesel engines. Components of diesel exhaust can cause a multitude of health problems and negative economic impacts. EPA has designated diesel exhaust as a likely human carcinogen, causing many other health-related problems as well as environmental and economic impacts. New diesel engines and vehicles have been subject to EPA's regulatory program of progressively more stringent emissions standards since the late 1980's for highway engines and since the early 1990's for engines used in nonroad applications. EPA's newest and most aggressive sets of standards for diesel engines and fuels will be phased in between 2007 and 2014.
