Our Variable Volume Variable Temperature (VVVT) SHED is capable of Federal and California Enhanced 2 and 3-day test sequences.
We are well-equipped to support:
CARB Executive Order (EO) Testing
California Vehicle Code, section 27156 (VC27156) and the Federal Clean Air Act(CAA) prohibit vehicle modifications which increase motor vehicle emissions.
However, since most properly engineered parts do not increase emissions, the laws allow for exemptions for the installation of parts proven by their manufacturer and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) not to increase emissions. The process by which these exemptions are granted is via an Executive Order (EO).
ATDS can acquire the necessary vehicles, perform modifications, conduct the required tests, and provide reports of the results to ultimately grant a CARB Executive Order.
EPA & CARB Regulatory Compliance Testing
We have been helping our clients comply with constantly evolving regulations for over 30 years. This includes:
DOT Safety Certification
ATDS can manage your DOT / NHTSA safety certification program and conduct FMVSS testing with our partner crash testing facility.
Starting with a preliminary product evaluation, we can progress your product through the testing and improvement phase, and then manage the FMVSS testing and certification process.
