This section shall become effective January 1, 2013.
(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) For STAR stations with a complete BAR-certified Emissions Inspection System capable of performing enhanced area ASM inspections on all vehicles subject to Smog Check pursuant to Sections 44003 and 44003.5 of the Health and Safety Code, irrespective of their program area location, perform the testing and certification of vehicles requiring inspection pursuant to Sections 44010.5 or 44014.7 of the Health and Safety Code.
(3) For 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, 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 paragraph may 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) STAR certified test-and-repair stations shall do the following:
(1) Under the terms and conditions of an agreement executed pursuant to Section 3394.2, offer state subsidized emissions-related repairs as a component of the Consumer Assistance Program established pursuant to Article 11 of this chapter. This paragraph shall apply to those STAR certified stations located in basic and enhanced areas.
(2) 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) 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.
