d) The Owner shall notify the CVSS as soon as he/she is aware that neither he/she nor any of his/her employees are eligible to conduct diesel emission inspections, e.g., when a CDET is no longer employed at the Station. Failure to have at least one employee who is certified to conduct diesel emission inspections automatically suspends the Official Testing Station's diesel emission inspection permit until such time as the Owner or an employee becomes certified to conduct diesel emission inspections.
e) The Owner shall notify the CVSS as soon as he/she is aware that his/her Official Testing Station is not eligible to conduct diesel emission inspections, e.g., the Station is closed for vacation. If the Official Testing Station is not eligible to conduct diesel emission inspections for more than 30 days, an authorized representative of the Department must approve resumption of the diesel emission inspection program.
f) The Owner is responsible for maintaining the equipment in proper calibration and for maintaining the Station in proper condition as required by 92 Ill. Adm. Code 451. After the diesel emission inspection equipment's manufacturer's warranty and maintenance program expires, the Owner is responsible for maintaining the diesel emission inspection equipment in proper working order.
g) It shall be the Owner's responsibility to cease conducting diesel emission inspections when any piece of that equipment malfunctions.
1) Equipment malfunctions and subsequent closure shall be reported to the CVSS as soon as the Owner is aware of the malfunction.
2) Diesel emission inspections shall not be resumed until repairs are completed and approval is secured from an authorized representative of the Department. An authorized representative of the Department will confirm that the diesel emission inspection equipment is working in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications.
h) It shall be the Owner's responsibility to maintain a quantity of diesel emission inspection supplies to accommodate vehicles presented for original inspection or returned for reinspection. If a Station does not have a quantity of diesel emission inspection supplies to issue to a vehicle returning for a reinspection, the inspection fee shall be refunded to the vehicle owner/operator.
i) The Owner shall be responsible for the proper security and handling of the diesel emission inspection supplies.
j) It shall be the Owner's responsibility to immediately notify the CVSS of any change in diesel emission inspection equipment.
k) It shall be the Owner's responsibility to provide funds to the Department to cover the cost of Validation Certificates to perform diesel emission inspections (i.e., one dollar per Certificate), either through transmittal of appropriate funds or through use of a previously established credit balance. These procedures are currently in operation according to 92 Ill. Adm. Code 451.140.
l) Validation Certificate fees shall be paid to: TREASURER, STATE OF ILLINOIS, by the Station for each Certificate issued.

The Owner shall be responsible for making certain all employees honor the terms of the suspension or revocation.
