Car Emission Controls: Council Agrees of Reforms

The Council of the European Union has agreed on a general approach to reform the system of type-approval and market surveillance for motor vehicles. This major reform will modernise the current system, adapt it to new technologies available on the market and improve control tests on car emissions data, a process in which analytical chemistry takes part. All member states agreed to improve the harmonised implementation of the rules across the EU so as to reduce the possible differences in interpretation and application by national type-approval authorities and technical services. They also agreed that more effective market surveillance rules should apply to better detect non-compliance at an early stage.
