Subject: Annual Summary of In-Use Compliance Testing and Recall Activity
To provide timely information on the Air Resources Board's (ARB) in-use compliance testing and recall program, the staff publishes a summary of this activity on an annual basis. Attached is a summary of the in-use compliance testing for calendar-year 2000. Also attached is a summary that includes all in-use compliance testing since the program's implementation in 1983.
Additionally, the staff compiled data regarding all recalls affecting California-certified vehicles that were implemented during 2000. Voluntary recalls and service campaigns from the applicable manufacturer, as well as recalls from the ARB's in-use compliance testing program are listed. Also included are the recalls that resulted from the ARB's emissions warranty information reporting (EWIR) program and a summary of all recalls resulting from the EWIR regulations from the program's implementation in 1990 through December 31, 2000.
As noticed last year with the 1999 report, this summary is now available only through the ARB Website at http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/inusecom/inusecom.htm. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Michael O'Connor, Manager of the In-Use Vehicle Testing Section at (626) 575-6814 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
