Vehicle Inspection/Maintenance Policy Review Group

The Policy Review Group was formed to determine the impact that any changes to the existing emissions program might have on state clean air plans.

Emerging technology issues, new federal regulations for on-board diagnostic systems and new information about the turnover of Pennsylvania's vehicle fleet require a re-examination of the way vehicle emissions-testing programs are implemented in the Commonwealth.

The following companies, organizations and government agencies are represented on the Policy Review Group: American Lung Association of Pennsylvania, Armstrong World Industries, Pennsylvania AAA Federation, Pennsylvania Automotive Association, Pennsylvania Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association, EPA, DEP and PENNDOT.

"We believe the people who have agreed to serve in this policy review group provide a balanced variety of ideas and opinions about our existing vehicle emissions-testing program, the proposed expansion of the program, and potential impacts on consumers, public health, and the environment," DEP Acting Secretary David E. Hess said. "We are expecting the group's report by Fall and will be using the recommendations to make any necessary changes to our programs."
