Importance of Emissions Regulations

importance of emissions regulations

The importance of emissions regulations cannot be understated, and we are only fighting the court battles that we are because the law has not been adhered to.

In the last few decades, we have been able to achieve huge reductions in emissions thanks to new technology. A lot of this is down to EU emission regulations, and it is important for all carmakers to follow them.

A key reason as to why there are emissions regulations in place is to keep people healthy and to help the environment stay protected. NOx can affect the tropospheric ozone that we breathe, and pollution in the air can lead to a decrease in vegetation growth and a reduction in crop yields.

Action over carmakers passing emissions tests through cheating

emissions tests

The European Commission currently has tight emissions tests and regulations in place for light–duty (cars, vans) and heavy-duty vehicles (lorries, buses), and for non-road mobile machinery.

Over the last few years, with the introduction of higher standards, the legal limit of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) has reportedly decreased by almost 70% for diesel cars.

Unfortunately, to meet these tighter restrictions, some car manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’. This can be a type of software that can allow vehicles to restrict performance and pass their emissions tests, but allow for far greater emissions levels when being used on the road. The scandals stemmed from the original VW “dieselgate” issues that came to light in 2015 that has resulted in the High Court making a finding that the technology they used is a defeat device.

The fact that the UK is facing being taken to the top European Court over air pollution should act as catalyst for punishing emissions cheaters like Volkswagen.

The UK is looking at fines that could run into the millions of pounds and has been referred to the European Court of Justice by the European Commission over failures to maintain vital pollution targets.

The Commission has reportedly issued “letters of formal notice” which may then lead to formal action against the UK.

uk mercedes customers can claim compensation

The Nissan Qashqai SUV is reportedly breaching EU NOx limits, adding to the list of cars that appear to be emitting far more pollutants than perhaps expected.

Some tests – as we have seen from the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal we are dealing with compensation claims for – appear to show that there are models polluting significantly more NOx on the road.

NOx kills, and it damages our environment. Laws are in place to reduce NOx being emitted for very good reasons.

EU to toughen up enforcement rules for spot-checking vehicles

First published by Admin on February 01, 2018 in the following categories: Emissions News and tagged with

new eu rules for vehicle manufacturers

The European Commission, the European Parliament and the 28 member states of the European Council have come to an agreement to make enforcement rules for cars to be much stricter and stronger, with the need for powers to conduct spot-checks to see if manufacturers are complying with rules.

Reportedly prompted by the atrocious Volkswagen scandal that revealed 11 million cars to be fitted with so-called “defeat devices” to cheat emissions testing, European regulators have been working towards building ‘safer and cleaner cars’ ever since.
