As a precautionary response to COVID-19, Ohio EPA is currently operating with most staff working remotely. If you are working with our staff on a current project and you know the name of the employee you are working with, email them at firstname.lastname@epa.ohio.gov or call them directly. The Agency website has contact information for every district, division, and office. In order to reach us, please contact Ohio EPA’s main phone line at (614) 644-3020 or the main line for the division or office you are trying to reach.

After March 23, our district offices and Central Office will be temporarily closed and will have increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. All entities are encouraged to submit plans, permit applications, etc., electronically where there are existing avenues to do so, such as the eBusiness Center (eBiz). Please refer to the list of available services on the main eBiz webpage. We encourage you to make use of all that apply, even if you have not used eBiz in the past. Plans under 25 MB can be emailed. For large plans over 25 MB, entities should work with the reviewer/division to upload via LiquidFiles. Directions for submitting docs via LiquidFiles is available on YouTube. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding. If you wish to send hard copies of documents to any of Ohio EPA’s district offices, the best method to ensure we receive these documents is to send them via U.S. Mail. Since all offices are closed, deliveries outside of U.S. Mail (FedEx, UPS) will likely be returned because the offices are closed and deliveries cannot be made.

To report a spill or environmental emergency, contact the spill hotline (800) 282-9378 or (614) 224-0946

Voucher Information

For customer convenience, individual vouchers may be purchased at any of the full-service testing stations for $18. Stations will accept either cash or a check made out to Envirotest Systems. The stations are not equipped to handle credit cards or debit cards. The voucher must be redeemed at the station where the voucher was purchased.

Vehicles required to test in Ohio

Motorists purchasing a voucher to accommodate a test that is required in Ohio will be eligible for a refund. Possible reasons for needing a voucher include:

  • Newly purchased vehicles outside of the four-model-year exemption
  • Out-of-state residents moving into an Ohio E-Check county
  • Ohio residents moving into an E-Check county

Vehicles from outside Ohio

Motorists purchasing a voucher to accommodate a test for another state's requirement or for marketing reasons will not be eligible for a refund.

Automobile Dealers

Automobile dealers may also purchase an individual voucher at any station provided the vehicle to be tested is present at the time the voucher is purchased. Automobile dealers will not be able to purchase multiple vouchers from a station unless all of the vehicles to be tested are present at the time the vouchers are purchased. Multiple vouchers may still be purchased at one time through the Envirotest Systems Twinsburg Office. For information regarding the purchase of vouchers through Envirotest, click here.
