What Is California Court Code 43100?

The California court code 43100 is a section of the Health and Safety Code of California, which allows the state board to certify new motor vehicles and new motor vehicle engines. According to section 43100(a), "the state board shall adopt and implement emission standards for new motor vehicles."

These emission standards have a direct consequence on the environment.
