The main four objectives for the project include implementing the process for imported vehicle emissions compliance certification application; domestic made vehicle emissions compliance certification application; vehicle information system maintenance and operations; and providing EPA assistance on policy required actions.
As to the implementing the process for imported vehicle emissions compliance certificates applications, in 2010 total 15,327 cases were being applied for imported vehicle exhaust and noise emissions certificate, 15,142 cases through this system, which accounted for 98.8% of total applications which include 63,262 gasoline vehicles, 13,118 diesel vehicles, and 2,912 motorcycles, total 79,292 vehicles. In addition, 2,587 domestic made buses were approved for the noise certifications. Total 77 vehicles were conducted on site inspections for certification verifications; four vehicles failed due to not affixed the exhaust emissions labels. The others vehicles were passed the inspection tests. Total 273 cases of quality control process were being conducted to ensure the effectiveness of new vehicle emissions control. The implementation of certification requirements could be provided to ensure the compliance of emission standards for every registered and enter into service vehicles and control the mobile emissions from vehicles effectively.
As to the work item of implementing the process of domestic made vehicle emission certification application. The system transmits emissions compliance vehicle’s information to the Motor Vehicle Service Stations, Ministry of Transportation and Communications periodically to ensure the registered vehicles could comply with exhaust and noise emissions standards. The total number of domestic made vehicles in 2010 is 777,273 which include 218,757 gasoline, 21,877 diesel, and 536,639 motorcycles. This action could ensure all the registered domestic made vehicles could comply with the EPA emissions and noise standards and fulfill the completeness of new vehicle control requirements.
As to the maintenance and operation of vehicle information system, the Development and Evaluation Commission was commissioned to establishing and maintaining the innovative electronic process for “Imported vehicle certification management system”, continuously adding new functions such as: electronic imported motorcycle tax payment; online pre-payment; no paper requirement electronic company seal file setting; noise test information transmission to establish a non paper requirement process and provide public a friendly application system. As to the ”Domestic made vehicle certification management system”, besides continuous maintaining and debugging to keep the system function normally, this project also reviewed and planning on some function adjustments for the current transmission process. The new vehicles emissions control data archive has successfully integrated gasoline, diesel vehicles and motorcycles exhaust emissions certification information and test results from accredited laboratories. Its establishment could accelerate the imported vehicle certification process and providing necessary information to the competent authorities.
As to providing EPA assistance on policy required actions, the project assisted to upgrading the “Imported vehicle certification management system”, established ”Domestic made vehicle certification management system”, and integrated the “New vehicle emissions data achieve” . Held 7 electronic application process system related conferences, discussion meetings, and educational training courses and edited the guidelines for certification process and system operation manuals which could provide references to the applicants and competent authority to understand the application process and to facilitate to promote working items for this project. This project also coped with the Research, Development and Evaluation Commission establishing and maintaining the innovative electronic process for imported vehicle services, finished planning on the procedures for electronic certification fee payment process. In the future, the implementation of electronic certification fee payment process, will provide public a convenience environment and save a lot of time as the currently requirement on personally attendance to the post office for certification fee payments. The electronic certification application process could simplify the application process and improve the administration effectiveness.
