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.
The SEMA Data team coordinated the effort with Auto Care to update the PIES specification for emissions descriptions and reference notes to be clearer for your parts.
The updated Coded Values in PIES (product information exchange standard) renamed codes for CARB, EPA, and Pre-pollution-controlled vehicles, and added codes for emissions-exempt products, as well as notice for parts awaiting emissions certification.
As you know, the emissions information is a required field for our SEMA Data Excellence program, and we recommend working with us to update your product classifications as soon as possible.
