The European Parliament in mid-December announced its support for a proposal to reduce emissions from trucks and buses of nitrogen oxides by 80% and particulate matter by 66% compared to the Euro V stage, which took effect in October. The Euro VI proposal, due to enter into force from the end of 2012, will also introduce worldwide harmonized test procedures and standards. Included are provisions on off-cycle emissions, onboard diagnostics, access to repair information, durability of pollution control devices, replacement pollution control devices, conformity of in-service engines and vehicles, CO2 emissions, and fuel-consumption measurement. European Union member states are expected to adopt the package soon.
