HDK Plastic Factory Ltd., USA Settlement
HDK Plastic Factory Ltd., USA Case Settles for $25,000
An investigation by the California Air Resources Board (ARB) revealed HDK Plastic Factory Ltd., USA (HDK) manufactured, imported, and sold uncertified electric vehicles for use in California. ARB requires all vehicles; including electric vehicles, to obtain an Executive Order prior to introduction in California. The Executive Order demonstrates the true zero-emission status and ensures that certain consumer safety, performance, and product standards are met.
In January 2015, HDK settled its case with ARB involving violations of Health and Safety Code sections 43151-43153. HDK agreed to pay a total of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00) to the California Air Pollution Control Fund.
