Interested members of the public may present comments orally or

bring to the attention of staff in advance of the hearing any
suggestions for modification of the proposed regulatory action. 
Comments submitted in advance of the hearing must be addressed to

Electronic submittal:  

Please note that under the California Public Records Act (Gov.
Code, § 6250 et seq.), your written and oral comments,
attachments, and associated contact information (e.g., your
address, phone, etc.) become part of the public record and can be
released to the public upon request.  

This notice, the ISOR and all subsequent regulatory documents,
including the FSOR, when completed, are available on ARB’s
website for this rulemaking at

The objective of this rulemaking is to provide manufacturers of
aftermarket catalytic converters with a procedure for
demonstrating that LEV III vehicles are capable of complying with
the emission standards to which the vehicles were certified while
equipped with a qualifying catalytic converter.  Manufacturers
who are able to demonstrate the capability of their aftermarket
catalytic converters to preserve the benefits of California’s
emissions control standards would then be allowed to sell and
install certified aftermarket catalytic converters on LEV III
vehicles in California.

Inquiries concerning the substance of the proposed regulatory
action may be directed to the agency representative Mr. Tony
Martino, Manager, Aftermarket Parts Section, at (626) 575-6848 or
(designated back-up contact) Mr. Richard Carranza, Air Resources
Engineer, Aftermarket Parts Section, at
(626) 450-6111.

Thank you.
