[REPEALED] Regulation for National Low Emission Vehicle Program [9 VAC 5 ‑ 200]
This action is part of the regulatory reform initiative.
Repeal of Chapter 200 National Low Emission Vehicle (Rev. M11)
General Information
Action Summary The regulation for the National Low Emission Vehicle (NLEV) Program (9VAC5 Chapter 200) was adopted by the board on January 7, 1999 with an effective date of April 14, 1999, to implement an EPA-approved alternative clean fuel fleet standard for mobile sources, the federal NLEV program. 9VAC5 Chapter 200 required mobile source manufacturers to participate in the federal National Low Emission Vehicle Program (40 CFR 86 Subpart R). On February 10, 2000 the federal NLEV program was superseded by federal Tier 2 standards which were more restrictive than the NLEV program standards (65 FR 6698). Additionally, 9VAC5 Chapter 200 has no requirements that are applicable to new vehicles after the 2006 model year. This amendment repeals 9VAC5 Chapter 200 in its entirety.
