Every year, each manufacturer of passenger cars, light-duty trucks, motorcycles or heavy-duty engines submits to EPA an application for certification. The application consists of two parts. In Part I, the manufacturer gives a detailed technical description of the vehicles or engines he intends to market during th upcoming model year. These engineering data include explanations and/or drawings which describe engine/vehicle parameters such as basic engine design, fuel systems, ignition systems and exhaust and evaporative emission control systems. Part I also provides information on emission test procedures, service accumulation procedures, fuels to be used, and proposed maintenance requirements to be followed during testing. The Part II application submitted after emission testing is completed, contains the results of emission testing, a statement of compliance to the regulations, and maintenance instruction to be followed by the ultimate owners of the vehicles.
