Vehicle and engine importers to pay civil penalty to resolve Clean Air Act violations
John Cheng (also known as Yuan Cheng) was the sole shareholder, director, president, secretary, chief financial officer, and treasurer of the YCIG. NST was the corporate successor to YCIG after YCIG dissolved. Mr. Cheng’s wife, Ms. Jenny Yu, was the president, secretary, chief financial officer, one of two directors, and a 50 percent shareholder of NST. Mr. Cheng was the other 50 percent shareholder of NST. Both Mr. Cheng and Ms. Yu are individually bound by the terms of the settlement and are personally jointly and severally liable for the liabilities and obligations arising from the consent decree.
The Clean Air Act prohibits any vehicle or engine from being imported and sold in the United States unless it is covered by a valid, EPA-issued certificate of conformity indicating that the vehicle or engine meets applicable federal emission standards. The certificate of conformity is the primary way EPA ensures that imported vehicles and engines meet emission standards. This settlement is part of an ongoing effort by EPA to ensure that all imported vehicles and engines comply with the Clean Air Act’s requirements.
