The Road Transport Department has made an announcement regarding the compliance certificates of new light and heavy duty vehicles, including motorcycles, tricycles, and quad bikes.
Starting from 1 January 2017, new vehicles must come with their compliance certificates in categories L3e, L4e, L5e, and L7e, showing compliance with Euro 4 emissions standard.
Car dealers will have to contact the Road Department ahead of time to obtain permission for vehicles that will register for compliance within 24 months, which means no later than 31 December 2018.
As vehicles run on internal combustion engine, they release exhaust gases that pollute the environment.
The European exhaust emissions standard sets a stricter limit on the amount of particulate matter, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons that vehicles can emit.
