Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief of the Mobile Source Operations Division by
the Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the ARB finds

      vehicle pollution control system.

      and an add—on part as defined by 13 CCR Section 1900(b)(1).                   —

 6.   The Scrubber does not reduce the effectiveness of any required motor vehicle
      pollution control system.

 7.   The ARB, in the exercise of technical judgement, is aware of no basis on which the "
      Scrubber will provide either a decrease in emissions or an increase in fuel economy.

      warranty, either expressed or implied, by the manufacturer of a motor vehicle on
      which the device is installed.                                                                 —

 9.   The Scrubberis not a certified motor vehicle pollution control device pursuant to the
      Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

Code Section 27156 for installation on 2005 and older model—year on—road diesel vehicles

       from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156.
