                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—562—18
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                           ._  Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. CarTex)
                      "Series 12400 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, Valina, Inc. (Valina) of 4560 Worth Street, Los Angeles, California 90069,
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 12400 three—way
catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1996 through 2004 model year Honda/Acura
passenger cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in
Appendix D—562—18 and incorporated herein. Series 12400 TWCs will be used for single
or dual parallel (one unit in each exhaust bank) catalytic converter applications, and may
be sold as a universal or direct fit system.

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 USA 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. _

Series 12400 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—562—18 meets the requirements
of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Valina, Inc.‘s Series 12400 TWCs are
