We enforce the Environment Protection (Vehicle Emissions) Regulations 2013. These cover fuel and exhaust emissions.
EPA also helps develop and put in place Australian Design Rules (ADRs) for new vehicles. Improvements in ADRs mean new cars emit less pollution than older ones.
EPA monitors areas where vehicle emissions may impact air quality. We also make our monitoring results and expertise available to help reduce vehicle emissions’ impact.
