                        .     Miller Catalyzer Corporation
                     "Series 60000 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

94545, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the profhibitions in
Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 60000

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 converter was
based on durability bench—aging by Umicore Automotive Catalysts using the Air

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

standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Orders D—353—24, it was determined that
the installation of Series 60000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—56 meets the
requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Miller Catalyzer Corporation‘s 60000
TWCs are exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391
for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D—353—56
