January 22, 2002 Final Rule 67 FR 2811

EPA Approval Date:
EPA's approval of two elements of the Enhanced I/M program was effective on February 21, 2002.

State Submittal:
SIP revison dated August 20, 2001.

Affected Areas:

EPA approved a SIP revision submitted by New Jersey that consists of two elements necessary for EPA to grant final full approval of New Jersey's enhanced motor vehicle I/M program. The first element provides the State's final submittal for compliance with the National Highway Systems Designation Act (NHSDA), which allowed states to claim additional credit for their decentralized inspection and maintenance programs, provided they could validate that credit claim with actual program implementation data. The second element revises New Jersey's performance standard modeling to reflect the State's enhanced I/M program as it is currently implemented. This element satisfies a condition of EPA's May 14, 1997 conditional interim approval of New Jersey's enhanced I/M program SIP.

New Regulations Included As Part of the SIP:

NJAC 7:27

NJAC 7:27B

NJAC 13:20

NJAC 13:21
