                       "Series 12600 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

 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 12600 three—way
 catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1996 through 2003 model year GM medium—duty
 vehicles equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in
 Appendix D—562—16 and incorporated herein. Series 12600 TWCs will be used for single
 or dual parallel (one unit in each exhaust bank) catalytic converter applications, and may

 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 USA using the Air —

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