The Applus Inspection & Maintenance Solution

Out of the Box: The Applus Inspection and Maintenance Solution

Implementing a new vehicle emissions inspection program means dealing with everything from deciding on the right Vehicle Inspection Database (VID) to making sure your State Implementation Plan (SIP) includes provisions for generating the right air quality models to document attainment down the road.

The Applus Inspection & Maintenance Solution is the “out-of the box package” that takes the guesswork out of first-time emissions inspection program implementation. Our turnkey solutions take care of everything—from SIP attainment plan guidance, to VID and testing equipment implementation—thereby providing jurisdictions with a packaged solution for administering a successful contractor-managed program with minimal customized requirements.
