                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—562—19
                 Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                                Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. CarTex)
                      "Series 12500 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 12500 three—way
catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1996 through 2004 model year Toyota passenger
cars and light—duty trucks 1 equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—I1) systems as
specified in Appendix D—562—19 and incorporated herein. Series 12500 TWCs will be
used for single or multiple (1, 2 or 3 units) 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 "CaliforniaEvaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.                          '

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by Valina, Inc.
using a vehicle of weight classification and exhaust configuration similar to those listed in
Appendix D—562—19 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in
the issuance of Executive Orders D—562—1, it was determined that the installation of
Series 12500 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—562—19 meets the requirements
of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Valina, Inc.‘s Series 12500 TWCs are
exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for
installation on the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D—562—19 subject
to the following conditions:


                                            —2—




. No changes are permitted to the catalytic converters as described in the application
  for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converters or any of their components,
  and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and approved by the Air
  Resources Board prior to marketing in California.

. Marketing of the catalytic converters using identifications other than those shown in
  the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the catalytic
  converters for application other than the ones shown in this Executive Order shall be
  prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.
  Exemption of these products shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer for
  sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic converters as individual devices.

._ Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Valina, Inc., its
  principals, agents, employees, distributors, dealers, or other representatives must
  include the disclaimer that the Executive Order or the exemption it provides is not an
  endorsement or approval of any emission reduction claims for the catalytic converters
  and is only a finding that the catalytic converters are exempt from the prohibitions of
  Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391.

._ Valina, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic converters must conform to
  requirements in Section (h) of the "California Evaluation Procedures for New

   sensor. Oxygen sensors must be installed in the same location, position and
  orientation as prescribed in the original equipment manufacturer‘s configurations.

   five (5) years or 50,000 miles as prescribed in Section (f)(2) of the "California
  Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted
  October 25, 2007.                                            |

. Valina, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket catalytic            .
  converters as "high flow or easy flow" catalytic converters or use any phrase that
  could make them appear to perform better than the original equipment manufacturer
  (OEM) catalytic converters.

._ Any marketing arrangement of the new aftermarket catalytic converter by a third
   party, which involves the use of packaging identification different from the ones
   described in this Executive Order, must be approved by the Air Resources Board
   prior to shipment.

. Valina, Inc., its associates, vendors, other businesses and individuals associated with
  Valina, Inc. may not sell or supply new aftermarket catalytic converter substrates to a
  third party to be assembled in a different facility and marketed under this Executive
  Order without approval from the Air Resources Board.
