POSITION PAPER: A New Approach for Post-Euro 6 Standards

This document presents the position and recommendations of the POLIS Network to develop a new approach for post-Euro 6 vehicle emission standards.

The main recommendations of this document are the following:

  • A new and effective vehicle emission standard must put the protection of human and environmental health at its core.
  • The responsibilities of vehicle manufacturers, vehicle owners and public authorities should be clearly defined.
  • Effective monitoring and enforcement are needed to restore trust in the industry and the European standards.
  • Less complexity, more collaboration and transparency with an effective European approach are needed.
  • Policies that support innovation in vehicle emission testing should be future proof and be aligned with the goals of the European Green Deal.
