STATEMENTS OF POLICY
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[67 PA. CODE CH. 41]
[33 Pa.B. 2889]
The Department of Transportation, Bureau of Motor Vehicles, under the authority contained in 75 Pa.C.S. §§ 4103, 4721 and 6103 (relating to promulgation of vehicle equipment standards; appointment of official inspection stations; and promulgation of rules and regulations by department) announces its intention to publish a policy statement interpreting the amendments to 75 Pa.C.S. § 1309 (relating to renewal of registration), enacted into law by the act of December 23, 2002 (P. L. 1982, No. 229) (Act 229).
The amendments to 75 Pa.C.S. § 1309 require an application for the renewal of registration for a motor carrier vehicle to be accompanied by a self-certification of current safety inspection. The Department intends to interpret 75 Pa.C.S. § 1309 to require certification that the applicant has either a currently valid certificate of inspection issued under 67 Pa. Code Chapter 175 (relating to vehicle equipment and inspection) or, for a motor carrier vehicle located outside this Commonwealth, a current certificate of inspection issued in accordance with 49 CFR 396.17 (relating periodic inspections).
Questions, suggestions or comments should be directed to John Munafo, Manager, Vehicle Inspection Division, 4th Floor Riverfront Office Center, Harrisburg, PA 17104, (717) 787-2304.
