Laws and Regulations
Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) Standards
Washington adopted the California motor vehicle emission standards in Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations, with the exception of California's zero emission vehicle program. The Washington Department of Ecology adopted rules to implement these emissions standards for passenger cars, light-duty trucks, and medium-duty passenger vehicles, known as the Clean Car Law. Each manufacturer's fleet of passenger cars and light-duty trucks delivered for sale in the state of Washington must proportionately conform to the zero emission vehicle requirements of California motor vehicle emissions standards, including credit banking provisions using Washington specific vehicle numbers. Model Year 2009 and later vehicles are exempt from state emissions inspections. For more information, see the Clean Car Law website.
