The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990 require that EPA review and republish Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) guidance in the Federal Register addressing a variety of issues including network type, i.e., whether the program is centralized or decentralized. Nearly every State that must operate an I/M program will need to obtain legislative authority to meet revised guidelines. This need provides an opportunity to reassess the effectiveness of current I/M program designs and make changes that will lead to improved air quality over the next decade. Network type is the most obvious and influential factor at work in an I/M program. This report attempts to analyze how emission reduction effectiveness, cost, and convenience vary by network type.
