Emissions Technical Centers

Multifunction facilities that conduct a variety of customer service and field activities to help you and the repair industry meet emissions requirements:
Our customers include motorists, independent and franchised auto dealers, automotive repair technicians, diesel fleet owners and operators, diesel repair facility owners and technicians, petroleum marketers, alternative-fuel vehicle converters and consumers, and the Colorado Department of Revenue.
We answer your and automobile technicians’ questions on emissions repairs and vehicle inspection programs. We look at individual vehicles that have recurring problems with their emissions test (failing multiple times, etc.).
We also provide training and certification for repair technicians and emissions inspectors, and inspect to support the Diesel Emissions Control Program and the Oxygenated Gasoline Program.
