The owner of a heavy-duty diesel-powered vehicle subject to the requirements of this chapter shall do all of the following:
(a) Inspection. Conduct an annual smoke test using the procedures set forth in section 2193(d). Alternatively, an owner may elect to conduct an annual review of OBD data for fault codes, as described in sections 2193(e), (f), for model year 2013 and newer vehicles.
(1) Record the vehicle test information as specified in section 2194.

Repairs must be done within 45 days of the smoke opacity test or the OBD data review. After repairing the vehicle, the owner shall:
(1) Record the vehicle repair information as specified in section 2194.
(2) Conduct a post-repair smoke test to determine if the vehicle complies with the applicable smoke opacity standard as specified in section 2193(a), or, for vehicles complying via submission of OBD data, confirm the vehicle has been repaired and submit a post-repair OBD scan that shows those fault codes have been cleared, as specified in section 2193(e).
(3) Record the post-repair smoke test results or OBD review results as specified in section 2194.
(4) Make additional repairs to achieve compliance if the vehicle remains out of compliance, and repeat the post-repair smoke test procedure or OBD review procedure under section 2193 as necessary to ensure compliance.
(c) Recordkeeping. Comply with the recordkeeping requirements set forth in section 2194. Keep the specified records for two years after the date of inspection.
