determine whether or not the cargo tanks and hazardous waste
transport vehicles and containers are designed, constructed, and
maintained in accordance with the regulations adopted by the
commissioner pursuant to this code and Chapter 6.5 (commencing with
Section 25100) of Division 20 of the Health and Safety Code.

observe or require these tests.  Records of these certifications
shall be maintained at the carrier's place of business.
