Welcome to the Summit Racing Equipment "Business to Business" website!


This area is reserved for Summit Racing Equipment Trading Partners.

Welcome to the Summit Racing Equipment "Business to Business" website. If you are a trading partner with Summit Racing Equipment then you will want to sign up with Summit Racing Equipment B2B. We have implemented a series of helpful applications which allow you to send/receive data with Summit Racing Equipment.


IMPORTANT NOTICE

Please see the annual reminder (below) regarding our responsibilities to remain compliant with Federal and State regulations as manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. While much of the language specifically pertains to California regulations, there are many other locales with emissions, air quality, and consumer safety regulations.


We ask that you read and be aware of the responsibilities outlined below.


EMISSIONS LAWS – INCLUDING CARB

Many local, state, and federal laws restrict the alteration, replacement, or removal of a vehicle's emission system components. These laws are applicable even if emission testing is not required.


In order to comply with California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations, especially on late model vehicles, it is imperative that the aftermarket embrace the CARB Executive Order (E.O.) process and obtain E.O. numbers for any emissions sensitive part which is not a direct replacement item.


Please ensure that your company is supplying good, accurate E.O. numbers and SKU information to Summit Racing Equipment where applicable, including updated E.O. numbers for new model year vehicles. Please advise us if your company has certain parts that cannot be legally sold into California or any other state with similar laws and regulations.


An overview of CARB can be found here: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermkt/devices/amquery.php

Summary of the Clean Air Act: http://www.epa.gov/laws-regulations/summary-clean-air-act


PROP 65

If you are unfamiliar with Proposition 65 requirements, we encourage you to visit the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment website. An overview of Prop 65 can be found here: https://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/about-proposition-65


To maintain full compliance, we need your assistance in making sure all products sold by Summit Racing Equipment have Prop 65 warning labels where applicable. This is extremely important, as we sell thousands of SKUs that potentially have Prop 65 implications, and businesses are required to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning to consumers.


Please note the warning regulations that will go into operation August 30, 2018.

VOC

If you are unfamiliar with VOC regulation, we encourage you to visit either the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website: http://www.epa.gov, or the California Air Resources Board website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/homepage.htm.


In order to ensure compliance with applicable regulations, we need your assistance to maintain accurate information for your products which contain VOC sensitive components. Please make Summit Racing aware of any changes regarding VOC restriction status on current products as soon as this information becomes available. If new products are added without VOC restriction data (either a statement advising there are no restrictions, or the states in which the product has VOC restrictions), the product will be blocked from shipping until proper information is received. When providing data, please include: part number, part description, and the state(s) where a VOC restriction exists.


TITLE 20

The California Appliance Efficiency Program requires that the manufacturers of certain appliances meet State and Federal standards for energy and water efficiency. Manufacturers must also certify the performance of their appliances to the Energy Commission to demonstrate compliance with the standards and make this information available to the public. Please see the following link for more information: http://www.energy.ca.gov/appliances/forms/index.html


Items such as stand-alone battery chargers and cordless power tool chargers must be CEC approved before allowing sale and shipment to California customers. If Title 20 certification status is not received, these items will be restricted from sale to California.


Made in the USA

Choosing products that are made in the USA is a priority for many enthusiasts in this industry. As such, advertising that products are made in the USA can increase sales and customers' loyalty to your brand. It has been our goal to tell customers when products are made in the USA. However, we also want to make sure we are providing accurate and consistent information.


You may know of various standards for Made in the USA labeling. In order to comply with the most stringent standards, Summit Racing Equipment will follow those outlined in the California Senate Bill 633. For more information: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160SB633

In order to correctly label your products as Made in the USA, we need the following information.


  • Completed indemnification document. This acknowledgement must be signed before we can label your products as Made in the USA (in print or online). This can be found in the Documents area of Summit Racing's B2B website.
  • An Excel list of sellable SKUs with a Yes, No, or Null response. This list should include all of your sellable SKUs (including stocking, dropship, and special order items). Response of Yes indicates that the SKU meets Made in the USA standards as outlined in the California Senate Bill 633. (These are listed in the Indemnification document, or follow the link above for more information.). Response of No means the SKU does not meet standards. Null/Blanks will be treated as a No response.

This list should include all of your sellable skus, whether it is a stocking item, dropship, or special order item. A template can be found in the Documents area of Summit Racing's B2B website.


We appreciate your continued cooperation,

If you have any questions, please contact Summit's Product Compliance Advisor, Matt Gabelman, at 330-633-2611 or MGabelman@summitracing.com.




UPS and FedEx have announced changes to their Services and Charges schedules, set to begin December 24, 2017. Among the changes are a significant increase in shipping surcharges associated to "Over Maximum Limits" package dimensions. Packages that exceed the specifications below will be charged a $350.00 over maximum surcharge, in addition to all other applicable charges.


The points below are weight and size limits from the UPS website. Packages over these limits are considered "Over Maximum" and subject to an additional $350.00 shipping surcharge:


  • Packages can be up to 150 lbs.
  • Packages can be up to 165 inches in length and girth combined.
  • Packages can be up to 108 inches in length.
  • Packages with a large size-to-weight ratios require special pricing and dimensional weight calculations.

In an effort to avoid additional surcharges and comply with package weight and size limits, Summit Racing is reviewing all products that fall near or exceed the maximum surcharge criteria, and are making packaging changes where appropriate, re-sizing product packaging to fall under the "Over Maximum Limits". We request our vendors evaluate their product as well, and make repackaging changes where suitable, to comply with the set forth weight and size limits. Your efforts in this matter are essential to our goal of providing our customers with superior products, leading service, and quick and cost effective shipping.


Any questions concerning this matter, may be directed your Supply Chain Specialist or Chip Tietze @ ctietze@summitracing.com.

How to participate…

In order to correctly label your products as Made in the USA (beginning with the January/February 2018 Catalog), we need the following information by 9/30/2017:


  • Completed indemnification document. This acknowledgement must be signed before we can label your products as Made in the USA (in print or online). This can be found in the Documents area of Summit Racing's B2B website.
  • An Excel list of sellable SKUs with a Yes, No, or Null response. This list should include all of your sellable SKUs (including stocking, dropship, and special order items). Response of Yes indicates that the SKU meets Made in the USA standards as outlined in the California Senate Bill 633. (These are listed in the Indemnification document, or follow the link above for more information.). Response of No means the SKU does not meet standards. Null/Blanks will be treated as a No response.
  • All SKUs with a Yes response must also have a United States Country of Origin. A discrepancy will result in a Null value and you will be notified so you can review and correct pertinent information. No Made in the USA information will be published on items with a discrepancy.

This list should include all of your sellable skus, whether it is a stocking item, dropship, or special order item. A complete list of your product offering can be found on the report section of the b2b website, titled, "Made in USA". Simply update the "Status Needed" column and return your worksheet along with your signed Indemnification document via our file upload tool under the category of "Made in the USA". Once these two documents are received we can market your product appropriately.


Please note, both of the above criteria must be provided. If one of the items is missing or incomplete, we cannot list your products as Made in the USA. As of 10/1/2017, Summit Racing Equipment will remove any Made in the USA labels (text and/or icons) on your products in print and online.


If you would like a copy of the signed indemnification document, please contact Chip Tietze, Summit Racing Equipment Purchasing Manager, at CTietze@SummitRacing.com.


Product maintenance…

We understand that sourcing can change from time to time. If your product(s) no longer meets the standards as outlined in California Senate Bill 633, it is your responsibility to notify Summit Racing Equipment as soon as the product becomes non-compliant. It is imperative that we remove all Made in the USA labels immediately.


If you have any questions about the standards, please contact Matt Gabelman, Summit Racing Equipment Product Compliance Advisor, at MGabelman@SummitRacing.com or 330-633-2611.


Thank you in advance for your participation. We look forward to hearing from you.
