Akrapovič America LLC announced that some of its parts and systems may not have been compliant with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) requirement, and it has paid for the noncompliance.
Here’s the news release.
Akrapovič America LLC, based in Irvine, Calif., together with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), recently completed an audit of its emissions parts and systems. As part of that audit, Akrapovič discovered that a small number of its parts and systems may not have been compliant with California’s stringent emissions laws. As a result, it has chosen to voluntarily pay a small amount to CARB in compensation. Going forward, Akrapovič will redouble its efforts to ensure that its parts and systems are 100% compliant with CARB, as well as the laws and regulations of the various jurisdictions in which they are sold.
Uroš Rosa, President of Akrapovič, comments:
“Akrapovič is a highly respected company that always tries to comply with all local legal requirements. In this situation, we have promptly and fully cooperated with CARB throughout the audit and are satisfied with the resolution that was worked out together.
“Akrapovič is a young company, distributing top quality aftermarket exhaust systems for motorcycles and cars in North America since mid-2010. We are confident our continuing professional approach and cooperation with local government authorities will pave the way for even more successful business in North America.”
Akrapovič will inform its network of distributors, dealers and customers in the coming months about further details regarding how to present and offer their products in a manner that fully complies with California regulations.
