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
jurisdictions
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.
