Weapon R Competition Products, Inc. Settlement
Weapon R Competition Products, Inc. Settles For $8,000
In October of 2020, Weapon R Competition Products, Inc. (Weapon R), headquartered in San Francisco, California, settled its case with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for emissions violations related to the sale of non-exempted add-on or modified vehicle parts in California. CARB determined that Weapon R advertised, sold, and offered for sale, add-on or modified vehicle parts without legal exemptions to California’s anti-tampering laws. Such parts replace or modify vital original emission components and manufacturer specified engine-operating conditions, and thus must be evaluated by CARB to demonstrate the vehicle’s continued emissions compliance. This conduct was in violation of California Vehicle Code section 27156 and California Code of Regulations, title 13, sections 2220 et seq.
The resulting settlement requires the company to pay a penalty of $8,000. Weapon R has agreed not to install, sell, offer for sale, or advertise in California any aftermarket part in violation of Vehicle Code section 27156 and California Code of Regulations, title 13, sections 2220 et seq.
