Document Description
California Air Resources Board has established a certification process for evaporative emission control systems that are required for the control of small off-road engine evaporative emissions (SORE EE) as described in title 13, California Code of Regulations (CCR), section 2753. Section 2768 allows a manufacturer to apply for a variance from one or more SORE EE regulatory requirements when necessary to avoid extraordinary economic hardship beyond the reasonable control of the manufacturer, and allows a variance to be granted if specific findings can be made and if noncompliance is mitigated to the maximum extent feasible. Briggs & Stratton Corporation applied for a variance from the Carbon Canister Capacity Requirements, for its engine evaporative family No. BSXCMH002 for model years 2019, 2020, and 2021, on October 25, 2019.
