The BAR Referee Label serves as the emissions control “under-hood” label, providing emission control information for SPCNS, grey market vehicles, vehicles with engine changes, alternative fueled vehicles, and, as needed, other vehicles with unusual configurations.
The Referee Label is typically, but not always, affixed to the left front door post. In some cases, the label may be located under the hood.
