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 Edge 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.
You can configure your vehicle and review the specific E.O. numbers assigned to our products and available for use with your vehicle. Edge has made significant investment in both time and resources to make sure your vehicle is covered. We continue to test and apply for expanded coverage on both gas and diesel vehicles. Make sure you review all the options available on our website to find the appropriate product.
