An increasing number of specialty-equipment companies are facing the growing complexity of complying with emissions-related parts requirements, particularly when governed by federal and California environmental regulations. Questions often arise about the compliance process, how to handle "cease and desist" letters, and how to avoid penalties and fines when selling emissions-related products in all 50 states.
SEMA will assemble government officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB)for a SEMA Show seminar to help create user-friendly solutions to these concerns. Panelists will address a wide range of emissions-compliance questions following an update on the current state of regulatory actions and directions.
Moderated by SEMA technical consultant and industry veteran Jim McFarland, virtually any manufacturer/supplier of emissions-related parts or systems will benefit from this information-infused seminar.
