§ 3392.1. Required Services and Equipment of STAR Stations.
(a) Both STAR-certified test-only and test-and-repair stations shall provide the following services to the public:
(1) The certification of vehicles previously identified as gross polluters.
(2) The testing and certification of vehicles requiring inspection pursuant to sections 44010.5 or 44014.7 of the Health and Safety Code, regardless of the station's program area location.
(3) STAR stations located in basic or change of ownership program areas that do not perform ASM inspections pursuant to sections 44003 and 44003.5 of the Health and Safety Code are authorized to perform the testing and certification of vehicles registered in enhanced areas only if the vehicles were purchased by a licensed Department of Motor Vehicles motor vehicle dealer, as defined in section 285 of the Vehicle Code, with the intent of offering the vehicles for sale upon the dealer's premises located in a basic or change of ownership area. STAR stations authorized pursuant to this subsection shall not issue a certificate of compliance to a vehicle that is owned by an entity other than a motor vehicle dealer licensed by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
(b)(1) STAR-certified test-and-repair stations operating under the terms and conditions of an agreement executed pursuant to section 3394.2 of the California Code of Regulations and section 44014.2(c) of the Health and Safety Code shall offer repair assistance services included in the agreement as a component of CAP. This subsection shall apply to those STAR-certified stations located in basic and enhanced areas.
(2) STAR-certified test-and-repair stations shall perform all emissions-related repairs in a good and workmanlike manner and in accordance with the procedures specified by the vehicle manufacturer or by repair standards generally accepted by the industry.
(3) STAR-certified test-and-repair stations shall allow Bureau personnel reasonable access to the station for the on-site inspection of vehicles while repairs are in progress, or for inspection of repaired vehicles still remaining on the premises. These inspections shall be for the purpose of evaluating the appropriateness and effectiveness of the repairs performed by the station.
(c) Both STAR-certified test-only and test-and-repair stations shall be capable of performing required inspections on all vehicles subject to Smog Check. A station shall be deemed not capable of performing uniform and consistent inspections pursuant to Health and Safety Code section 44036(a) if the station fails to maintain at least one of each piece of BAR-certified inspection equipment required in the Smog Check Manual, incorporated by reference in section 3340.45, as follows:
(1) Any equipment requiring calibration shall pass calibration at least once every ten (10) calendar days.
(2) Any BAR-identified equipment deficiencies shall be corrected within the time period specified by BAR.
(3) STAR stations located in basic or change of ownership program areas that certify STAR-directed vehicles only when purchased by a licensed Department of Motor Vehicles motor vehicle dealer are not required to be capable of performing ASM Smog Check inspections, nor required to maintain inspection equipment used exclusively for performing ASM Smog Check inspections.
(d) Any station not capable of performing required inspections shall be restricted from communicating with BAR'S database, as detailed in section 3340.17(f), until BAR verifies all identified deficiencies have been corrected by the station.
