    the impact of deterioration on vehicle emissions control systems as the vehicles age. The EMFAC model includes the impact of the Smog Check vehicle inspection and maintenance program on emissions. EMFAC includes the impacts of each Smog Check program implemented, beginning with the first statewide biennial program.   Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) programs (called Smog Check in California) are the keystone of EPA's strategy to reduce in-use vehicle emissions. We have performed evaluations of EPA's recommended I/M program in Phoenix, as well as California's Enhanced Smog Check program, using both program test results and independent measurements of on-road.

    Information for South Central Drivers. The Vehicle Emissions Inspection and Maintenance Program is part of an overall plan to bring cleaner air to Pennsylvania. Private garages do both tests and repairs annually, just like the safety inspection. Information for Pittsburgh Area Drivers. In October , Pennsylvania upgraded the Vehicle Emissions Inspection and Maintenance Program, operating since , as part of an overall plan to bring cleaner air to Pennsylvania.. Motorists helped design the program with driver convenience in mind.
