§ 2406. Emission Control System Warranty Statement.
(a) Each manufacturer must furnish a copy of the following statement with each new 1995 and later small off-road engine, using those portions of the statement applicable to the engine.
The California Air Resources Board (and manufacturer's name, optional) is pleased to explain the emission control system warranty on your (year(s)) (equipment type or small off-road) engine. In California, new small off-road engines must be designed, built and equipped to meet the State's stringent anti-smog standards. (Manufacturer's name) must warrant the emission control system on your (equipment type or small off-road) engine for the periods of time listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of your small off-road engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel-injection system, the ignition system, and catalytic converter. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors and other emission-related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, (manufacturer's name) will repair your (equipment type or small off-road) engine at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labor.
The 1995 and later small off-road engines are warranted for two years. If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by (manufacturer's name).
- As the (equipment type or small off-road) engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your owner's manual. (Manufacturer's name) recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your (equipment type or small off-road) engine, but (manufacturer's name) cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.
- As the (equipment type or small off-road) engine owner, you should however be aware that (manufacturer's name) may deny you warranty coverage if your (equipment type or small off-road) engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.
- You are responsible for presenting your (equipment type or small off-road) engine to a (manufacturer's name) distribution center as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact (Insert chosen manufacturer's contact) at 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.

(2) The service center phone number must be staffed with at least one English speaking contact. The contact must be able to respond to inquiries in real time or if the volume of calls precludes a real time response, within one business day.
(c) Each manufacturer must submit the documents required by Subsections (a) and (b) with the manufacturer's preliminary application for new engine certification for approval by the Executive Officer. The Executive Officer may reject or require modification of the documents to the extent the submitted documents do not satisfy the requirements of Subsections (a) and (b).
