§ 3392.1. Gold Shield Program (GSP).
This section shall remain in effect through December 31, 2012. The Gold Shield Program is a voluntary program that permits any licensed Smog Check test-and-repair station, which meets or exceeds the standards established pursuant to this article to obtain a certification that may be publicly displayed and otherwise advertised.
(a) The purposes of the Gold Shield program are to:
(1) Reduce the complexity of the Smog Check Program by allowing Smog Check stations certified as Gold Shield stations to offer consumers a wider array of inspection and repair services.
(2) Encourage consumer confidence in the required emissions inspections and repairs by the establishment of inspection and repair standards that stations must meet or exceed to receive and retain certification from the Bureau.
(3) Improve the identification and repair of high-emitting vehicles to enhance the effectiveness of the Smog Check Program.
(4) Contribute to the emissions reductions objectives required by the State Implementation Plan and federal standards.
