ITEM California and Federal Test Procedures and Emission Standards for Light-Duty Vehicles. INTRODUCTION The Federal Government, on November 10, 1970, adopted new test procedures and emission standards for light-duty vehicles. This has made it necessary for the Air Resources Board to consider revised test procedures for California. The Board, at its November 18-19, 1970 meeting, announced that it would hold a special meeting on December 15, 1970, to consider changes which would be needed in the current California procedures. It requested the Technical Advisory Committee to review this matter and make recommendations to the Board on December 15, 1970. The Technical Advisory Committee met on November 30, 1970; present were representatives of most of the automobile manufacturers. Based on the recommendations of the TAC, the ARB Staff has prepared revised test procedures and emission standards for 1972 and subsequent model light-duty vehicles.
