EPA has released its first annual report that summarizes environmental compliance data from all mobile sources including cars, light duty trucks and non-road equipment. The 2007 model year report provides information about vehicle recalls, emissions certification testing, and emission defects. This report will help stakeholders better understand the compliance program’s requirements, process and results. EPA’s compliance program is an important part of improving the nation’s air quality.
