Singapore to adopt Euro VI emission standard for new diesel vehicles from 2018
THE National Environment Agency (NEA) on Tuesday said the Euro VI emission standard for new diesel vehicles will be implemented in Singapore from the start of 2018.
This standard, as set by by the European Union (EU), imposes strict rules on tailpipe emission for new vehicles sold in EU member states, NEA said.
"In NEA's continued effort to further improve air quality and safeguard public health, this latest and more stringent standard will serve to further reduce the emission of air pollutants such as fine particulate matter and nitrogen oxides emission from diesel vehicles."
NEA said it has been consulting the motoring industry since early 2014 on the new standard, and has given the industry "sufficient lead time" to bring in vehicles equipped with advanced emission control technology to meet the emission requirements.
