Caterpillar Inc. announced on Nov. 8 its strategy for meeting the needs of customers in lesser regulated countries selling and purchasing used Tier iV Interim products for operation in lesser regulated countries, where prevailing fuel quality and fuel sulfur content vary widely.

Based on extensive testing, analysis and field validation, Caterpillar has determined that Cat Tier iV Interim engine systems between 130kW and 895 kW (7-32L engines) will not require any modification to operate in lesser regulated countries.

For Cat Tier iV Interim engines less than 130kW, Caterpillar will offer authorized modification processes that remove aftertreatment from machine and commercial engine configurations to enable operation in lesser regulated countries.

Modification processes, which includes decertification, will be made available to customers in lesser regulated countries exclusively through their local Cat dealer beginning in 2014.
