IRP Major Projects - Rewrite
Rewrite Guiding Principle:
A registrant is a registrant: All vehicles
should be registered under the same rules –
unless there is a compelling reason or
conflicting regulation for a particular
industry segment that requires following
different rules.
IRP Major Projects - Rewrite
 Rewrite Purpose:
The Plan needs to better reflect modern
technology and business practices.
The language in the Plan needs to be clear.
The various Plan sections should be
coordinated and consistent.
The Plan should allow for full implementation
of NAFTA, including the eventual admission
of Mexico as an IRP member.
IRP Major Projects - Rewrite
Rewrite Concepts:
“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.”
Organize Plan into topic areas – it will be easier to
understand and administer
Determine which audit requirements belong in the Plan
and which belong in the Audit Procedures Manual
Remove obsolete language
Remove unofficial commentary that is not binding
Remove all unneeded requirements for registrants and/or
IRP Major Projects – Rewrite
Rewrite Benefits:
Future participation of Mexico as a member jurisdiction.
Provide clarity and uniformity in determining IRP
registration fees.
Specific guidance for fleet consolidation, addition of
vehicles, and splitting fees. This will ensure jurisdictions
realize appropriate revenue when fleets are changed or
moved from one jurisdiction to another.
Clear alternatives for establishing a base jurisdiction.
Adding “reasonableness” and jurisdiction accountability.
