EPA = environmental protection agency

The letter should state whether it meets the guidelines. Note that California is a different kettle of fish altogether though.

Hi:

This is for general information:

http://www.customs.ustreas.gov/imp-exp2/informal/car.htm

You may want to take a look at the stickers and tags placed on the car by the manufacturer -- if from a major NAFTA manufacturer, the car may already meet all the standards.

Also, not exactly on point -- but an article from www.edmunds.com

http://www.edmunds.com/advice/specialreports/articles/64615/article.html

Good luck
