Complying with Constantly Evolving Federal and California Regulations
Explore ATDS' full-service emissions and range testing capabilities. Equipped with two SHEDs, an AWD dynamometer, canister loading stations, and bench analyzers, we are also able to be flexible with the type of testing you require. Our services are perfect for both homologation and compliance testing as well as special engineering tests.
Featuring Sealed Housing for Evaporative Determination (SHED) for evaporative emissions testing. Multi-day diurnal testing and on-board vapor receovery (ORVR) for CARB and EPA certification.
As a recognized laboratory for CARB, ATDS is able to perform California Aftermarket EO Testing from start to finish. Don't have a test letter? We can help with that and perform the required tests.
ATDS is able to fully support the testing and durability requirements mandated by CARB's TP-901, TP-902, and TP-933. From pre-conditioning all the way to diurnal testing, we can get your off-road systems market certified.
ATDS is constantly helping manufacturers both EPA and CARB compliance. One of our specialties is getting your vehicle or engine on the North American market. Let's discuss your project today.

Certify your aftermarket parts for the Californian market
California Vehicle Code, section 27156 (VC27156) and the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA) prohibit vehicle modifications which increase motor vehicle emissions.
However, since most properly engineered parts do not increase emissions, the laws allow for exemptions for the installation of parts proven by their manufacturer and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) not to increase emissions. The process by which these exemptions are granted is via an Executive Order (EO). You must be granted an EO in order to legally sell aftermarket parts in the state of California.
We can acquire the necessary vehicles, perform modifications, conduct the required tests, and provide reports of the results to ultimately grant a CARB Executive Order.
You'll be on the fast-track to getting your aftermarket parts certified for California.

Determining emissions from small off-road engines and off-highway recreational vehicles
We fully support testing for several CARB 900 series test procedures:
• CARB TP-901 Test Procedure for Determining Permeation Emissions from Small Off-Road Engine Fuel Tanks
• CARB TP-902 Test Procedure for Determining Diurnal Emissions from Small Off-Road Engines
• CARB TP-933 Test Procedure for Determining Evaporative Emissions from Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles
This includes fuel system pre-conditioning (regular and accelerated), pressure/vacuum testing, fuel tank sloshing, UV exposure, carbon canister working capacity and durability (thermal, vibration), diurnal testing, and more.
