The report shall include the number of greenhouse gas vehicle test groups, delineated by model type, certified pursuant to the California Code of Regulations, Title 13, section 1961.1 and 1961.3, as appropriate.
The report shall follow the procedures in the California Code of Regulations, Title 13, section 1961.1 and 1961.3 and shall be in the same format used to report such information to the California Air Resources Board.
