College and University Inspection and Maintenance Partnership Program Workshop

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) hosted a workshop on May 1, 2012, to discuss issuance of on-campus vehicle parking permits and how it relates to regional air quality and emissions enforcement efforts.  Texas Education Code (TEC), Section 51.207 (e), states that, “Each institution of higher education that maintains a campus police force shall adopt procedures for enforcing State of Texas vehicle inspection laws for vehicles parking or driving on the campus of the institution.” 

At this meeting, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) discussed applicable rules related to emissions inspections requirements on campus and NCTCOG discussed the Regional Emissions Enforcement Program and ways schools can gain access to the NCTCOG Emissions Database (NED) for purposes of ensuring all vehicles comply with the TEC.  With access to NED, enforcement personnel are able to verify proper emissions inspections as well as identify stolen, counterfeit, and fictitious emissions inspection certificates.  NED access is available free of charge and accredited training classes are available at no cost.
