Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. There are many mobile source regulatory requirements implemented nationally by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that impact mobile sources in Tennessee. In addition, the state has established additional programs to implement optional federal programs allowing the state to make progress toward attainment of all the national ambient air quality standards.
• Administration and enforcement. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) administers and enforces the vehicle inspection and maintenance (I/M) program in Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, and Wilson counties. The Metropolitan Health Department of Nashville/Davidson County's Air Pollution Control Division administers and enforces the vehicle I/M program in Davidson County and the city of Nashville.
