Description of Subjects/Issues To consider revisions to Regulation Number 11 to clarify and make more transparent existing provisions, correct administrative errors, delete obsolete language, delete certain qualifying criteria and standards and establish inspection procedures when tampering is detected. Six changes will be made in this rule making: 1) Delete the older IM 240 test as the sole data to be used to develop a clean screen low emitting vehicle index, thereby allowing the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) test data collected from newer vehicles to also be used to develop the low emitting vehicle index; 2) Correct an administrative error where the readiness requirements for Envirotest public lanes and the readiness requirements for self-inspecting vehicle fleets were transposed in the regulation; 3) Delete readiness language from OBD “Inspection Passing Criteria” to clarify that readiness is a determinant of whether or not a vehicle will undergo an OBD inspection; 4) Correct language to clarify that the IM 240 test conducted on five percent of OBD tested vehicles will be the pass/fail determinant for those vehicles; 5) Establish language regarding OBD test procedures where tampering is detected; and 6) Delete obsolete language by removing antiquated equipment requirements. The proposed revisions may also correct any typographical, grammatical, and formatting errors found through the regulation.
Purpose/Objective of Rule Considered proposed revisions to Regulation Number 11, Part C to reflect procedural changes and criteria used in the emissions inspection of motor vehicle On-Board Diagnostics and to Part F to modify the on-road remote sensing clean screen low emitter index qualifying criteria, to incorporate the use of on-board diagnostics test data collected from newer vehicles.
