Current Issue

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.

MassDEP, RMV and Applus are committed to conserving natural resources. Beginning with the October issue of Inspection Update, the newsletter will be distributed solely by email.
