Enforcement of Emissions Regulations

Over the past three years, the members of the Clean Air Association have been undertaking research and investigating a potential infringement of emissions regulation by a particular vehicle manufacturer. The Clean Air Association has come to the conclusion that the relevant type approval authorities and manufacteruers have failed to protect our air. In the coming months, the Clean Air Association will pursue further action against manufacturer(s) who do not comply with emmissions regulations. The Clean Air Association seeks the proper enforcement of emissions regulation and the rectification of any breaches.

Investingating the Hybrid Hype

Do Parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) have underrated emissions figures? Given the industry's history with emissions compliance andthe increase in the number of variables that may contribute to the test results of PHEVs, the Association has begun research in this field. Findings on this matter are expected to be published later this year.

Building a Framework

The Clean Air Association is committed to making a difference, not only through publications and review but by contributing to the building of a future framework around emissions compliance. The Association will attend the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) for the eighty-first session of the Working Party on Pollution and Energy in an observatory capacity in June of 2020. The Association intends to further its involvement and consult the UNECE on matters pertaining to air pollution in the future. Currently, the Assocation is undertaking research for the purposes of drafting an amendment to Regulation No.83. The Association hopes to present to this amendment to the UNECE for adoption.
