Detail of outcome
Following on from this consultation, the government has now published the 19th edition of the In service exhaust emission standards for road vehicles.
The In service exhaust emission standards for road vehicles booklet is used by garages undertaking MOT tests and provides model specific data on emissions performance of most vehicles within scope of the MOT test.
The nineteenth edition takes into account new vehicle models that have come onto the market since publication of eighteenth edition and make corrections to earlier data provided by manufacturers.
The changes are contained in the new draft annex to the booklet, which sets emissions limits for petrol cars and light commercial vehicles equipped with advanced emissions control systems, during MOT.
