OHRV - Executive Order Introduction
Component Executive Orders
CARB evaluates components for Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles (OHRV) and certifies those components that meet the evaporative emissions standards. The goal of the program is to ensure that the components meet the specific design standards and are certified to be sold in California. All components listed on this webpage have been shown to meet or exceed the design standards established in Title 13, Section 2418 of the California Code of Regulations.
The component Executive Order list contains information submitted to CARB from manufacturers. CARB has reviewed this information and believes it to be accurate, but does not assume any responsibility for any errors or inaccuracies that may exist herein. CARB may revise the information contained in this document at any time.

OHRV Executive Orders
All non-competition Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles (OHRVs) in California must be registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles (the DMV) if the owners intend to use the OHRV on any public land. In order for an OHRV to be registered with the DMV, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) must first issue an Executive Order for the particular make, model, and model year that is to be registered with the DMV.
For certification purposes, vehicles are grouped in engine families or test groups for exhaust emissions (hereinafter, engine families) and evaporative families for evaporative emissions. Within each family, the vehicles share similar designs and are expected to have similar emission characteristics. To be certified, the manufacturer of an OHRV must demonstrate that its exhaust and (as applicable, depending on the specific vehicle category) evaporative emission control systems are durable and comply with the emission standards for the vehicle's useful life. An application for certification must be submitted to, and approved by CARB (and in some cases, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA)). This is done through durability and certification testing of the prototype certification vehicle(s). Compliance with anti-tampering, crankcase emissions, etc., as applicable, must be demonstrated as well. Once the testing is completed by the manufacturer, or an independent laboratory of their choosing, the data is reviewed by CARB staff. If the data produced by the manufacturer shows that the OHRV is in compliance with all of the applicable standards, certification is then issued by CARB.
Executive Orders typically include all pertinent certification information such as the vehicle model year, engine and evaporative families, emission control systems, vehicle models, etc. Production vehicles must be identical in all material respects to those (of the certification vehicles) for which the certification was granted. Production vehicles must also be properly labeled and have their emission control systems warranted for their specified useful life. New and customer-owned production vehicles are subject to compliance testing (by either the manufacturers or CARB) and warranty repairs reported by the manufacturers, can both result in remedial actions.
