(4) Manufacturers must re-apply for Executive Officer approval of a deficiency each
model year. In considering the request to carry-over a deficiency, the Executive
Officer shall consider the factors identified in section (k)(1) including the
manufacturer’s progress towards correcting the deficiency. For all deficiencies
except for deficiencies associated with PM filter monitoring section (f)(9.2.1)(A),
the Executive Officer may not allow manufacturers to carry over monitoring
system deficiencies for more than two model years unless it can be
demonstrated that substantial vehicle hardware modifications and additional lead
time beyond two years would be necessary to correct the deficiency, in which
case the Executive Officer shall allow the deficiency to be carried over for three
model years. For deficiencies associated with PM filter monitoring section
(f)(9.2.1)(A), if the manufacturer can demonstrate that substantial vehicle
hardware modifications and additional lead time would be necessary to correct
the deficiency, the Executive shall allow the deficiency to be carried over up to
and including the 2013 model year.

(5) Except as allowed in section (k)(6), deficiencies may not be retroactively granted
after certification.

(6) Request for retroactive deficiencies
(6.1) Manufacturers may request that the Executive Officer grant a deficiency and

amend a vehicle’s certification to conform to the granting of the deficiencies
during the first 6 months after commencement of normal production for each
aspect of the monitoring system: (a) identified by the manufacturer (during
testing required by section (j)(2) or any other testing) to be functioning
different than the certified system or otherwise not meeting the requirements
of any aspect of section 1968.2; and (b) reported to the Executive Officer. If
the Executive Officer grants the deficiencies and amended certification, their
approval would be retroactive to the start of production.

(6.2) Executive Officer approval of the request for a retroactive deficiency shall be
granted provided that the conditions necessary for a pre-certification
deficiency determination are satisfied (see section (k)(1)) and the
manufacturer could not have reasonably anticipated the identified problem
before commencement of production.

(6.3) In granting the amended certification, the Executive Officer shall include any
approved post-production deficiencies together with all previously approved
deficiencies in computing fines in accordance with section (k)(2).

(7) Exceptions to Fines Requirements.
(7.1) For 2007 through 2009 model year light-duty and 2007 through 2012 model

year medium-duty diesel vehicles, in cases where one or more of the
deficiencies is for the aftertreatment monitoring requirements of sections
(f)(1), (2), (8), or (9) and the deficient monitor is properly able to detect all
malfunctions prior to emissions exceeding twice the required monitor
threshold (e.g., before emissions exceed 10 times the standard for NMHC if
the threshold is 5.0 times the standard for NMHC), the specified fines shall
apply to the fourth and subsequently identified deficiencies in lieu of the third
and subsequently identified deficiencies. If none of the deficiencies are for
the requirements of sections (f)(1), (2), (8), or (9) or if the deficient
