SECTION 25770-25773



25770.  For the purposes of this chapter, the following terms have
the following meanings:
   (a) "Board" means the California Integrated Waste Management Board
established pursuant to Division 30 (commencing with Section 40000).
   (b) "Consumer information requirement" means point-of-sale
information or signs that are conspicuously displayed, readily
accessible, and written in a manner that can be easily understood by
the consumer. "Consumer information requirement" does not include
mandatory labeling, imprinting, or other marking, on an individual
tire by the tire manufacturer or the tire retailer.
   (c) "Cost effective" means the cost savings to the consumer
resulting from a replacement tire subject to an energy efficiency
standard that equals or exceeds the additional cost to the consumer
resulting from the standard, taking into account the expected fuel
cost savings over the expected life of the replacement tire.
   (d) "Replacement tire" means a tire sold in the state that is
designed to replace a tire sold with a new passenger car or
light-duty truck. "Replacement tire" does not include any of the
following tires:
   (1) A tire or group of tires with the same SKU, plant, and year,
for which the volume of tires produced or imported is less than
15,000 annually.
   (2) A deep tread, winter-type snow tire, a space-saver tire, or a
temporary use spare tire.
   (3) A tire with a nominal rim diameter of 12 inches or less.
   (4) A motorcycle tire.
   (5) A tire manufactured specifically for use in an off-road
motorized recreational vehicle.



25771.  On or before July 1, 2006, the commission shall develop and
adopt all of the following:
   (a) A database of the energy efficiency of a representative sample
of replacement tires sold in the state, based on test procedures
adopted by the commission.
   (b) Based on the data collected pursuant to subdivision (a), a
rating system for the energy efficiency of replacement tires sold in
the state, that will enable consumers to make more informed decisions
when purchasing tires for their vehicles.
   (c) Based on the test procedures adopted pursuant to subdivision
(a) and the rating system established pursuant to subdivision (b),
requirements for tire manufacturers to report to the commission the
energy efficiency of replacement tires sold in the state.



25772.  On or before July 1, 2007, the commission, in consultation
with the board, shall, after appropriate notice and workshops, adopt
and, on or before July 1, 2008, implement, a tire energy efficiency
program of statewide applicability for replacement tires, designed to
ensure that replacement tires sold in the state are at least as
energy efficient, on average, as tires sold in the state as original
equipment on new passenger cars and light-duty trucks.



25773.  (a) The program described in Section 25772 shall include all
of the following:
   (1) The development and adoption of minimum energy efficiency
standards for replacement tires, except to the extent that the
commission determines that it is unable to do so in a manner that
complies with subparagraphs (A) to (E), inclusive. Energy efficiency
standards adopted pursuant to this paragraph shall meet all of the
following conditions:
   (A) Be technically feasible and cost effective.
   (B) Not adversely affect tire safety.
   (C) Not adversely affect the average tire life of replacement
tires.
   (D) Not adversely affect state efforts to manage scrap tires
pursuant to Chapter 17 (commencing with Section 42860) of Part 3 of
Division 30.
   (2) The development and adoption of consumer information
requirements for replacement tires for which standards have been
adopted pursuant to paragraph (1).
   (b) The energy efficiency standards established pursuant to
paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) shall be based on the results of
laboratory testing and, to the extent it is available and deemed
appropriate by the commission, an onroad fleet testing program
developed by tire manufacturers in consultation with the commission
and the board, conducted by tire manufacturers, and submitted to the
commission on or before January 1, 2006.
   (c) If the commission finds that tires used to equip an authorized
emergency vehicle, as defined in Section 165 of the Vehicle Code,
are unable to meet the standards established pursuant to paragraph
(1) of subdivision (a), the commission shall authorize an operator of
an authorized emergency vehicle fleet to purchase for those vehicles
tires that do not meet those standards.
   (d) The commission, in consultation with the board, shall review
and revise the program, including any standards adopted pursuant to
the program, as necessary, but not less than once every three years.
The commission may not revise the program or standards in a way that
reduces the average efficiency of replacement tires.
