    The Department is adopting amendments to the NJDEP testing procedures and requirements to be followed in the inspection of diesel-powered motor vehicles in the State’s new diesel inspection and maintenance (I/M) program.

    The Department is adopting these changes to:

  1. to clarify that certain testing procedures are required only during inspections conducted by State-licensed Diesel Emission Inspection Centers (DEICs) as part of the periodic inspection program but are not required during inspections conducted by the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the State Police (roadside enforcement teams) as part of the roadside enforcement program, and
  2. correct certain other typographical inconsistencies regarding the vehicle engine size and transmission type for which the snap acceleration smoke opacity test and the stall acceleration test are appropriate.
