ITEM Staff Discussion on Resolution 70-12. On December 4, 1969, the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare adopted a labeling regulation similar to this proposal. The Federal regulation provided that the manufacturer could also include on the label information required by State regulations. Much of the information proposed for this regulation is identical to Federal requirements. Additional items (4, 6, 7, 8) were developed by an interagency committee of the Board, Highway Patrol, and Department of Motor Vehicles. These requirements will aid licensed stations in identifying control systems for issuance of the certificate of compliance. See results of licensed garage survey attached. The staff recommends that the regulation become effective for 1971 model vehicles manufactured after July 1, 1970. ITEM Progress Report on Low Emission Control Systems - AB 690. The Air Resources Board, pursuant to Assembly Bill No. 690 (amended by AB 466), has a contract with each of three organizations to produce a total of 22 low emission control systems which are to be installed on state-owned vehicles for evaluation by the Board's staff. To date, a system has not been produced that satisfies the requirements of AB 690. The status of the program, as it relates to each participant, is summarized below. ITEM Progress Report - Federal Grant to Demonstrate the Technological Feasibility of Controlling Oxides of Nitrogen from Vehicular Exhausts. The Air Resources Board has a Federal demonstration grant to assess the effectiveness of an exhaust recycle system to reduce oxides of nitrogen in vehicular exhausts. The system was designed and developed by ARCO Chemical Company, a division of Atlantic Richfield Company. The Board is in the process of making an extensive evaluation of the control method.
