                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—393—8

                               Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                   Johnson Matthey
                            CEM and DCC Catalytic Converters

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the CEM and DCC Catalytic
Converters, manufactured by Johnson Matthey of 380 Lapp Road, Maivern,
Pennsylvania 19355, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
vehicle pollution control system, and therefore, the CEM and DCC Catalytic Converters
are exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code for
installation on 1987—2003 model—year 4—stroke turbocharged or naturally—aspirated
on—road heavy—duty diesel engines rated between 50 and 750 horsepower, certified to
particulate matter emission standards of 0.60 g/bhp—hr or less and not otherwise
equipped with an aftertreatment emission control system such as a catalytic converter
or a diesel particulate filter.

This Executive Order is based on emission tests conducted by Johnson Matthey with
the CEM Catalytic Converter. Test data showed that the CEM Catalytic Converter has
no adverse impact on exhaust emissions. The same emissions impact is expected
when the DCC Catalytic Converter is installed on any of the engines in this exemption.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the CEM and
DCC Catalytic Converters do not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the d'esign or operating conditions of the CEM and DCC Catalytic
Converters, as exempt by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s pollution control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the CEM and DCC Catalytic Converters using identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or for an applicationother than that listed inthis
Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any CEM and DCC Catalytic Converters
advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.


                                              «2.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
CEM and DCC Catalytic Converters may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this
Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on
or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of California Code of
Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF JOHNSON
MATTHEY‘S CEM AND DCC CATALYTIC CONVERTERS.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing
is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request, and the Executive
Order maynot be revoked until a determination is made after a hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     18 Td day of June 2003.




                                         Auem?yons, Chief
                                         Mobile Source Operations Division
