K&N Engineering, Inc. Key Developments

California Air Resources Board Fines K&N Engineering Inc. for Offering Illegal Aftermarket Parts for Sale in California

The California Air Resources Board announced that K&N Engineering Inc. has agreed to a settlement totaling $521,000 to resolve violations of the California Health and Safety Code related to the advertising and sales of illegal aftermarket performance parts in California. Air Resources Board investigators discovered that K&N Engineering sold performance parts that had not received exemptions from California's emissions control system anti-tampering laws. California law prohibits the advertising, sales or installation of parts that modify vehicle emissions control systems unless they are proven to not reduce their effectiveness. Manufacturers of aftermarket and performance parts must follow a process to receive an Executive Order exemption where they prove that the parts do not reduce the effectiveness of these systems. This settlement covers the illegal marketing and sales of performance parts in California by K&N from mid-2010 to mid-2013. The settlement of $390,750 will be paid to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which supports efforts to decrease air pollution through education and the adoption of cleaner technologies. The remaining $130,250 of the settlement will be directed to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, which administers a program to clean up school bus fleets throughout the state.
