provides CARB with reasons to suspect that MPower Engineering, Inc.‘s FlexiRamp

additional test(s) in the future to show that such emissions are not affected.

identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is
obtained from CARB.

In addition to the foregoing, CARB reserves the right in the future to review this
Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on
or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California
Code of Regulations, Section 2222 et seq.

FlexiRamp Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Conversion Kit may have on any warranty
either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

be made with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or

Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing
