Delegates from China Visit BAR to Discuss Consumer Protection Initiatives
Chief Patrick Dorais and BAR staff welcomed a delegation from the Shanxi province of China on January 13, 2016, for an open discussion and presentation on BAR’s consumer protection objectives. The presentation provided information about the Smog Check Program, the Consumer Assistance Program, and enforcement activities. BAR staff also provided a laboratory demonstration of BAR-97 and BAR-OIS inspections. This and other international visits demonstrate California’s state-of-the-art programs and the interest from countries around the world to replicate our successes in consumer and air quality protection.
