                               Airtek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
                    "Series 610000 Three—way Catalytic Converters"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395, and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(h), authorize the California Air Resources
Board and its Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and 38391.

WHEREAS, Airtek, Inc. (Airtek) of 4410 W. 37"" Avenue, Hobart, Indiana 46342, has
applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 610000 three—way
catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1995 through 2003 model year GM passenger
cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix
D—280—69 and incorporated herein. Series 610000 TWC will be used for multiple

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and
Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Operations Division by
Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the Air
Resources Board finds that the above aftermarket catalytic converters comply with the
California Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222(h). Emission performance of the catalytic converters was
based on durability bench—aging by Southwest Research Institute using the Air

Appendix A to the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.

  party, which involves the use of packaging identification different from the ones
  described in this Executive Order, must be approved by the Air Resources Board
