Cummins Reviewing Emissions Certification and Compliance Process for Its Pickup Truck Applications

COLUMBUS, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today announced that the company is formally
reviewing its emissions certification and compliance process for its

Following conversations with the U.S. EPA and CARB regarding
certification for the engines in the 2019 RAM 2500 and 3500 trucks, the
company made the decision to review its certification process and
compliance with emissions standards. This review is being conducted with
external advisors to ensure the certification process for Cummins pickup

standards and applicable laws. Cummins has voluntarily disclosed the
review to our regulators and other agencies and will cooperate with them
to ensure a complete and thorough review and implement recommendations
for improvement.

technologies that provide customers with the highest performing products

goals. Cummins remains committed to ensuring that its products meet all
current and future emissions standards and delivering value to our
customers.
