Gray Market Vehicles
A gray market vehicle is a vehicle whose owner has brought it into the United States from another country and wishes to have it titled and registered here. A gray market vehicle may or may not have been produced overseas, the distinguishing feature is that it has never been titled in the United States.
Before the vehicle can be titled in Maryland it must meet the safety, pollution control and other specifications imposed by three different federal agencies: U.S. Department of Transportation [U.S. DOT]; U.S. Customs & Border Protection [U.S. Customs] and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA].
A vehicle that does not meet these specifications is referred to as “non-conforming.” The owner of a non-conforming vehicle must have it modified so that it becomes a “conforming” vehicle, before applying to the MVA. The vehicle must be titled within 60 days of entry into the United States.
