An analysis was made of the work task activities that would be required of an EPA group in the process of implementing a program whereby independent testing laboratories (and their test operators) would be certified as to their capability to perform vehicle exhaust emission tests. The results indicate that a laboratory certification group consisting of seven inspectors and one supervisor is adequate to perform the certification activities for 17 laboratories and 34 operators (two operators at each laboratory) which were assumed to be early applicants to the proposed certification program. These laboratories were composed of 12 in the continental U.S., 4 in Europe, and 1 in Japan. The work task activities examined included all functional tasks required for initial and renewal certifications as well as on-going quality control of both laboratories and operators. The total annual cost of such a laboratory certification program was estimated to be approximately $460,000 (including travel costs).
