18. a. Upon receipt of the compliance form for a vehicle or piece of equipment required to use best available retrofit technology pursuant to department rules and regulations, an approved fleet plan, combined fleet plan, fleet averaging plan, or supplement or modification thereto, as applicable, the owner of the vehicle or piece of equipment shall retain the form on the vehicle or piece of equipment for which it was issued, and a copy of the current form in the business records of the owner, at all times.

b. As soon as practicable after the requirement to implement the use of best available retrofit technologies for a specific vehicle or piece of equipment as provided in department rules and regulations, the approved regulated fleet retrofit plan, combined regulated fleet retrofit plan, or fleet averaging plan, or supplement or modification thereto, as applicable, has been complied with, the owner shall complete the appropriate portion of the form provided pursuant to section 6, section 7, section 16, or section 17 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.31, C.26:2C-8.32, C.26:2C-8.41, or C.26:2C-8.42). The owner, shall: (1) indicate the choice of best available retrofit technology that has been used to fulfill the requirement; (2) enter into the identified space on the compliance form the label identification number for any retrofit device that has been installed on the regulated vehicle or regulated equipment; (3) certify that the requirement on the form has been met for the regulated vehicle or piece of regulated equipment whose vehicle identification number or serial number, as applicable is printed on the form; and (4) provide and certify the date that the installation was done or compliance began on the compliance form.

c. For any regulated vehicle that is not required to be inspected under the periodic inspection program established pursuant to P.L.1995, c.157 (C.39:8-59 et seq.), the owner shall have the regulated vehicle inspected by a diesel emissions inspection center licensed pursuant to P.L.1995, c.157 (C.39:8-59 et seq.) for the presence of the required retrofit device and compliance with the requirement described on the compliance form issued pursuant to section 6, section 7, or section 17 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.31, C.26:2C-8.32, or C.26:2C-8.42), as soon as practicable after the requirements of subsection b. of this section have been met for the regulated vehicle.

d. For any regulated vehicle that is subject to inspection under the periodic inspection program pursuant to P.L. 1995, c.157 (C.39:8-59 et seq.), the owner, after complying with the provisions of subsection b. of this section, shall have the regulated vehicle inspected for compliance with the requirement printed on the form issued pursuant to section 6, section 7, or section 17 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.31, C.26:2C-8.32, or C.26:2C-8.42) at the next annual periodic inspection scheduled for the vehicle, or as soon as practicable after complying with the provisions of subsection b. of this section. No provision of this subsection shall be construed as requiring the owner to have any vehicle subject to a periodic inspection to have that vehicle registered at any scheduled periodic inspection.

e. A diesel emissions inspection center licensed pursuant to P.L.1995, c.157 (C.39:8-59 et seq.) shall inspect any regulated vehicle presented to it for inspection for compliance with the requirement on the form issued for the regulated vehicle pursuant to section 6, section 7, section 16, or section 17 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.31, C.26:2C-8.32, C.26:2C-8.41, or C.26:2C-8.42). The person performing the inspection shall verify the presence of the required retrofit device, the match of the label identification number on the form with the device in the vehicle, and shall certify that the requirement has been met based on the presence of the required retrofit device and the match of the label identification number on the form to the label identification number on the retrofit device on the vehicle, and the correct vehicle identification number on the form. No provision of this subsection shall be construed to require the diesel emissions inspection center to verify the functioning or the correct installation of the retrofit device, or to test for the level of emissions reduction attributed to the use of the retrofit device.

f. If the owner of the regulated vehicle is a licensed diesel inspection center or is otherwise authorized to self-inspect the vehicles owned by the owner, the owner may perform the inspection and provide the certification required pursuant to subsections d. and e. of this section.

g. Only one inspection per vehicle is required pursuant to this section.
