CALIFORNIA ARB PROPOSES TO REVISE AFTERMARKET CATALYTIC CONVERTER REQUIREMENTS

The California Air Resources Board is proposing to revise its current requirements for the sale and use of aftermarket and re-manufactured catalytic converters. The proposed requirements would extend the period for meeting emissions reductions from 25,000 to 50,000 miles or a period of five years, applicable to all new converters sold, advertised or installed after January 1, 2009.

Under the proposal, catalytic converter warranties would be required to include these new limits. The proposal would also require that the sale of used catalytic converters cease beginning July 1, 2008. A public hearing on these proposals will be held October 25, 2007 in Sacramento, California.
