Manufacturers of consumer products subject to the emission limits are required to clearly display the date of manufacture on each product. The date of manufacture should appear either as YYDDD or a calendar format, such as MM/DD/YYYY. If a different code format is used for the manufacture date, an explanation of that code must be filed annually with CARB by January 31st.
