Commission welcomes Member States' agreement on robust testing of air pollution emissions by cars
EU News 299/2015
Brussels, 28 October 2015
Today Member States meeting in the Technical Committee of Motor Vehicles have voted by a large majority on the second package of implementing measures to introduce real driving emissions tests for air pollutant emissions by diesel cars.
That is why the Commission has been working hard to bring light into this area. We have already reformed the way tests should be conducted so they reflect actual emissions in real driving conditions. Now, Member States have agreed that from 1 September 2017 these new real driving emissions (RDE) tests will determine whether a new car model is allowed to be put on the market.
