Non-Conforming (Non-U.S. Version) Vehicles
EPA strongly recommends that prospective importers buy only U.S. version (labeled) vehicles, because of the expense and potential difficulties involved with importing a non-U.S. version vehicle.
Non-U.S. version vehicles less than 21 years old must be modified to meet U.S. emission and safety standards and/or to be identical to U.S. version vehicles and must be imported by an Independent Commercial Importer (ICI).
EPA strongly recommends that current owners of non-U.S. version vehicles sell or Otherwise dispose of those vehicles overseas rather than ship and import them into the U.S., because of the expense and potential difficulties involved with importing a non- U.S. version vehicle.
The EPA policy which permitted importers a one-time exemption for vehicles at least five years old has been eliminated.
Before shipping a non-conforming vehicle for importation, EPA strongly recommends that the importer either make final arrangements with an ICI for modifications and testing, or obtain EPA approval in writing for importation. Storage fees at the ports are costly, and the vehicle may not be eligible for importation.
Not all non-conforming vehicles are eligible for importation, and ICIs are not required to accept vehicles for which they have qualifying certificates of conformity.
EPA certification of ICIs does not guarantee the actions or work of the ICIs, nor does it regulate contractual agreements and working relationships with vehicle owners.
