The Board considered this proposal at its March meeting. At that time industrial representatives questioned the need for parts numbers and said that the proposed requirements would present problems to the industry. The Board asked the staff to further discuss the item with industry representatives and to consult with the Technical Advisory Committee. The Technical Advisory Committee considered the proposal on April 16 and recommended the adoption of the regulation as proposed. Commissioner Sullivan has submitted the accompanying letter urging the adoption of Resolution 70-12. The staff has received a number of written comments on the proposal, and discussed the matter with industry representatives on May 6. the oral and written comments are summarized below. ITEM Staff Discussion of Resolution 70-28. At its March 18, 1970 meeting the Board requested to modify the 25,000 mile durability and 4,000 mile emission requirements for used cards. A copy of a letter from ford Motor Company in which this request was made is included in this agenda item. In a letter ballot following the March 18 meeting, the Board directed the Executive Officer to publish a notice of proposed changes in test procedures so that a hearing could be held at the May 20, 1970 meeting of the Board. Eliminating the requirement of testing for 25,000 miles and 4,000 miles would shorten the time to acquire emission data needed to obtain accreditation of used car control systems. The Technical Advisory Committee considered the proposal on April 16. It recognized that control system components similar to those now in use may not require extensive durability testing. However, it felt that the 4,000 mile requirement should not be eliminated. The Committee recommended: a) The Executive Officer be given authority to accept substitute data in lieu of the 25,000 mile durability test data. b) The 4,000 mile emission data vehicle test requirements be retained.
