                                 Airtek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
                "Series 110000 & 410000 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 110000 & 410000
 three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1996 through 2003 model year
 Mazda passenger cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as
 specified in Appendix D—280—71 and incorporated herein. Series 110000 & 410000
 TWCs will be used for single or multiple exhaust applications.

 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
 Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for 75 hours as specified in
 Appendix A to the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
 Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.

 in Appendix D—280—71 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted
 in the issuance of Executive Orders D—280—15 and D—280—20, it was determined that the
 installation of Series 110000 & 410000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—71
 meets the requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

_ THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBYRESOLVED that Airtek, Inc.‘s 110000 & 410000 TWCs
