Inspection Update Newsletter

The Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) and their contractor, Applus, recognize the need to keep vehicle inspection and repair professionals up-to-date with changes to the Massachusetts Vehicle Check Program, technical lessons learned and other related information. A newsletter, Inspection Update, is published quarterly with useful program information for licensed inspectors and registered repair technicians and facilities.

Because MassDEP, RMV and Applus are committed to conserving natural resources, the newsletter is now distributed exclusively by email to stations/inspectors and Registered Techs. In addition, an electronic version is posted on the Program website.
