Why a CARB “Executive Order” is Important to Consumers?
The short answer is that an Executive Order (E.O.) number keeps your vehicle in compliance with regulatory bodies. 50-state legal Superchips products come with assurance knowing you are covered when you go to get your routine Smog check in California, or other counties that have adopted CARB’s standards.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) requires specialty parts manufacturers selling emissions-related products for on-road use in California to obtain “certifications” for such components. By so doing, products are assigned an “Executive Order” (E.O.) number, indicating successful completion of emissions and related tests in an authorized testing facility. Failure to obtain an E.O. can result in fines and the inability of a vehicle to pass routine “Inspection and Maintenance” (I&M) tests, conducted by the state of CA. I&M tests are also being required in other states and major air quality regions throughout the country. In addition, emissions-related specialty parts require a CARB E.O. when registering, re-registering or transferring title of a vehicle.
