Emission codes update with SEMA Data

PIES Emission Codes help clarify and protect you and your customers

With the EPA cracking down on our industry, it's never been more important to work with SEMA Data to ensure your parts have the documentation and codification necessary to convey proper use.

Proper cataloging of your parts could offer you and your customers protection from the EPA wanting to impose fines for misuse or negligence.

SEMA Data can help with loadsheets

If a reseller is requesting our product information in PIES format, what does it mean when I'm being asked to fill out a loadsheet, too? 

We understand how confusing and frustrating this can be. Loadsheets, that may also be called Merchandiser Sheets, are often used by larger resellers where processing product information through PIES XML datasets by a data team may be separate from the sales and category managers. This occurs when required information is outside the accommodations of the PIES content.

Most common fields outside the Standard include: contracted pricing, hazardous material specifics, market segmentation, battery information, reseller specific SKU reference, etc.

SEMA Certified-Emissions and improvements to the PIES Emission Codes help clarify and protects you and your customers.

With the EPA cracking down on our industry, it's never been more important to work with SEMA Garage and SEMA Data to ensure your parts have the documentation and codification necessary to convey proper use.

Proper cataloging of your parts will offer you and your customers protection from the EPA wanting to impose fines for misuse or negligence.

The SEMA Garage offers emission compliance support through its recently introduced SEMA Certification-Emissions program which certifies that a product meets the EPA’s “reasonable basis” criteria making it legal for sale in 49-states, or obtaining a California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order (EO) makes it legal in all 50 states. Being able to accelerate compliance through SEMA Garage will give you the ability to get products to the market faster.

Gear up for SEMA Show 2022 with Data Excellence

SEMA Data Excellence Award recipients will be featured at the SEMA Show 2022

Manufacturers whose data scores Gold or Platinum by August 1, and who maintain that level through the end of October, will be recognized at the annual in-person SEMA Data Users Group event at the SEMA Show 2022, along with other benefits throughout the Show floor and app.

The SEMA Data Scorecard levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, were created to guide you through the maze of product content essential to your business partners. Scored data facilitates serving varied segments and purposes of the market, from chain store customers, warehouse distributors, and resellers of all sizes. Manufacturers and brand owners whose product data meets Gold and Platinum are considered to have attained Data Excellence.

Achieving and maintaining Data Excellence is a conscious, strategic decision made by a dedicated staff. Choosing this strategy pays off big time for your brand and internal data. "As your industry partner, we care for the quality of your product information. High quality content and images build your sales, your brand reputation, and your relationship with your business partners," says Gigi Ho, SEMA Data VP of Operations.

HSP Cold Air Intake 2013-2016 Chevrolet/GMC Satin Black – Part No. 502-2-HSP-SB 
The HSP Diesel HSP Cold Air Intake on average produces an additional 20 horsepower and 58 pounds of torque on the dyno. To do this we increased the size of the factory intake to a 4 ½” mandrel-bent tube. This gives you an extremely consistent, and free-flowing path that enables the HSP Cold Air Intake to out-perform other intakes on the market. The HSP Cold Air Intake is also paired with the HSP Diesel style heatshield box. The heatshield box allows us to keep the heated-up engine air out of the intake. We want this because cooler air is more dense and denser air creates more power.

ACES bed type update VCdb removes Styleside Stepside

Auto Care updated the VCdb for bed type configuration table. 

As you may know, SEMA Data subscribes to Auto Care's Vehicle Configuration Database (VCdb) to help you create ACES records (i.e., vehicle fitment data for your parts). The database is updated every month and each month there are always updates and changes to be aware of and remap your data if needed.

The latest change in the VCdb has done away with the "Styleside" and "Flareside" bed type options. Styleside was a marketing term used by Ford for its regular flat-sided bed on their pickup trucks; and Flareside was used for beds with the wheel well arches on the outside of the bed, leaving the interior cargo box area of the bed perfectly rectangular.

Auto Care uses the term "fleetside" to describe truck bed option with the flat-sided exterior and wheel well arches within the carbo box area, and "stepside" for the truck bed option with the wheel well arches outside the cargo box area.
