spcns -- Fact Sheet Posted: Certification for Engine Packages for use in Specially Constructed Vehicles (including Kit Cars) Posted: 14 Sep 2011 10:07:06
ARB staff has posted a fact sheet regarding proposed certification regulations and procedures for engine packages for specially constructed vehicles, including kit cars. Please find the fact sheet at the following link: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/onroad/spcns/spcns.htm Staff will propose the new regulations and certification procedures at the November 17, 2011 Board Hearing, in Sacramento, CA. Background The California Air Resources Board (ARB or the Board) staff is proposing optional certification regulations and procedures for new light-duty engines for use in specially constructed vehicles (SPCNSs, such as kit cars). The proposed regulations and procedures would create a path for manufacturers to certify engine packages, that when placed into an SPCNS, would meet new vehicle emission standards, and enable the vehicle to meet Smog Check requirements. The proposed regulations and procedures would not impose any new mandated requirements on engine manufacturers or hobbyists. Certifying engine packages via the new regulations and procedures would be optional for engine manufacturers, and provide hobbyists an alternative to choose certified low emitting engine packages.
