The European Commission has put forward a proposal for a Directive relating to measures to be taken against air pollution caused by emissions for motor vehicles.

The proposal amends the previous Directives 70/156/EEC and 70/220/EEC in this area, in light of the latest scientific advances in combating atmospheric pollution caused by gases emitted from motor vehicles.

A further tightening of the emission standards of vehicles falling within the scope of this Directive is foreseen no later than 31 December 1998. This will contain, inter alia, mandatory emission limit values to be applied from 1 January 2005.
