(a) A manufacturer or distributor of emissions test equipment may apply to the department for certification of that equipment for use under this chapter. A person who seeks certification of equipment for use in this state under this chapter shall provide EISs that are an Alaska version of the BAR 97-certified EIS or equivalent. The EIS must be modified to meet the specifications set out in Part I of the program manual. The application must include

(b) An applicant for certification under this section shall submit two EISs for evaluation by the department or its designee. The applicant will be given the opportunity to correct minor discrepancies without the need for re-evaluation. Upon certification, the applicant shall transfer ownership of the two EISs to the department.

(c) The department will certify an EIS that meets the requirements of Part I of the program manual and this section.

(d) Annual renewal of certification under 18 AAC 52.425 is required. Renewal of certification will be approved upon a determination by the department that the applicant has complied with any software update requirements imposed under this section or Part I of the program manual and with all service and maintenance requirements identified under (a)(7)(A) of this section and has not committed a violation for which the department might take a compliance action as described at 18 AAC 52.110(b).

(e) Certification of an EIS may be modified, suspended, or revoked under 18 AAC 52.110 if the department determines that the EIS does not fully comply with all portions of the analyzer specifications set out in Part I of the program manual or that the manufacturer has committed a violation for which the department might take compliance action as described at 18 AAC 52.110(b).

(f) The department will, in its discretion, limit suspension or revocation of the certification for an EIS to future sales of that EIS. EISs in service at the time the department imposes a limited suspension or revocation that do not conform to analyzer and update specifications will be locked out until they are brought into compliance at the discretion of the department. If the department limits the suspension or revocation of an EIS to future sales, the department will notify all certified stations and other representatives of the repair industry that the certification of that EIS has been suspended or revoked for EISs put into service after the date of the suspension or revocation. If problems identified are not corrected within the time specified by the department, the department will, in its discretion, suspend or revoke certification for all EISs affected, including those EISs in service at the time of the initial suspension or revocation.
