                                  State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER 0-562-30
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 271 56 and 38391
                                 of the Vehicle Code

                             Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. CarTex)
                  "Series 12300 & 12100 Three-way Catalytic Converters"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 271 56 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 271 56 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 271 56 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 12300 & 12100 three-way



                                           1
catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1995 hrough 2004 Toyota medium-duty vehicles
(MDV) equipped with on-board diagnostic II ( BD-II) systems as specified in Appendix
D-562-30 and incorporated herein. Series 12 00 & 12100 TWCs will be used for dual
exhaust systems with multiple catalytic con rters for selected Toyota trucks as shown in
Appendix D-562-30. The catalytic converters may be sold as universal or direct fit systems.
The catalytic converters were previously exempted for this application as Series '12301 &
12311.

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 27 156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).
Emission performance of the catalytic converters was based on durability bench-aging by
Umicore Automotive Catalysts USA using the Air Resources Board-modified RAT-A
bench-aging cycle for 100 hours, as specified in Appendix A to the "California Evaluation
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 2000 4.6L Ford F-150 equipped with dual exhaust system, and certified to Low
Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards and medium-duty vehicle 2 (MDV2) weight classification
showed that the vehicle met applicable emission standards for LEVlMDV2 with Series 12300
& 12100 (2 units) installed. OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle
showed that Series 12300 & 12100 TWC did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform OBD l l
system monitoring. The tests resulted in the issuance of Executive Order D-562-4.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Valina, Inc.'s 12300 & 12100 TWC are
exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 271 56 and 38391 for installation on
the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D-562-30 subject to the following
conditions:


1. 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.

2. 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 thisExecutive 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.

3. 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.

4. Valina, lnc.'s installation instructions for the new catalytic converters must conform
   to requirements in Section (h) of the "California Evaluation Procedures for New
   Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted October 25, 2007.

5. Installation of the catalytic converters shall not cause the relocation of an oxygen
   sensor. Oxygen sensors must be installed in the same location, position and
   orientation as prescribed in the original equipment manufacturer's configurations.

6. Upon installation, the catalytic converters must carry a manufacturer's warranty for
   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.

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

8. Any marketing arrangement of the new aftermarket catalytic converters 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.

9. Valina, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and individuals associated with
   Valina, may not sell or supply new aftermarket catalytic converter substrates to a

during which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest
