Ohio signs renewed contract with Opus Inspection

The State of Ohio, Environmental Protection Agency has signed a new contract with Opus Inspection’s subsidiary Envirotest to continue providing the vehicle emission inspection program, known as E-Check. The new contract continues through June 30, 2019 and may be extended at Ohio EPA’s option up to an additional two years, during which time the program is expected to transition to OBDII and Remote Sensing testing. Opus Inspection has provided a turnkey vehicle emission inspection program for the State of Ohio since 1995.

The new E-Check program is based on Opus´ proven motorist-choice design, which will provide the consumer with several ways to comply with the inspection requirement:

• 23 full service company-operated stations with 75 Testing Lanes;
• 56 local business subcontracted stations;
• 16 Opus Self-Check OBDII Kiosks; and
• Clean Screening with Opus´ on-road remote sensing technology.

“We have had a longstanding, excellent relationship with Ohio EPA,” said Chris Smith, Opus Inspection’s Vice President of Operations. “We are pleased to continue offering motorist choice and convenience at our E-Check program. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Ohio EPA for many more years.”

Opus estimates the contract value to be approximately $9.4 million per year.
