Direct message from Paul Hedglin at the DCA Regarding WebCam Requirments for Smog Stations:

“The 2021 Smog Check Manual, page 26 (https://www.bar.ca.gov/pdf/regulatory-actions/equipment-security-2021/approved-manual.pdf) that became effective regulation on 10/1/2022 includes a requirement for a webcam for both the BAR-OIS and the BAR-97 EIS inspection systems. Although a requirement exists to have webcams, we have not started designing the remote access software functionality to use a web cam and it will be a long time before we get there. There is no need to get webcams anytime soon. OPUS is correct that the implementation has been tabled. But incorrect that a requirement does not exist.”
