Updated Vehicle Emissions Control Rule (Arizona Administrative Code Title 18, Chapter 2, Article 10)

Summary:
ADEQ received an exemption from the Governor's rulemaking moratorium to rewrite Arizona Administrative Code Title 18, Chapter 2, Article 10. The updated rule:

  • Brings the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) in line with federal regulations
  • Implements HB 2357 (2005) and HB 2226 (2014) into the rule
  • Allows the VEIP to leverage new technology
  • Codifies VEIP practices that were simplified as a result of process improvements
  • Reduces excessive audits

Arizona’s VEIP is run pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes Title 49, Chapter 3, Article 5. The VEIP has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a part of Arizona’s State Implementation Plan (SIP). The VEIP remains an integral part of the Arizona SIP, and a key cog in the state’s ability to meet National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). A VEI program is an “applicable requirement” for the Phoenix carbon monoxide (CO) and ozone planning areas under the EPA’s anti-backsliding provisions.
