“National Stage V Emission Standard” Required for Heavy Duty Vehicles in Beijing5. August 2015
High concentrations of toxins in the air have become a well-known problem for China in recent years. The implementation of tighter emission standards and the introduction of regulations to set fuel consumption restrictions pose major challenges for vehicle manufacturers. The current vehicle emission control regulations for vehicles registered in Shanghai and Beijing are already very strict, however the Chinese government has plans for even stricter controls to be introduced in the coming years.
Starting June 1, 2015 all diesel engine trucks will be required to meet the “National Stage V Emission Standard” The future standard will mandate that all diesel trucks with a maximum compound of 3.5t will have to comply with the Chinese government’s emission standard. The regulation will affect about 220,000 trucks (or about 4% of all vehicles) in Beijing City. Although a relatively small percentage, trucks in Beijing are responsible for 50% of NOx emissions and for 90% of PM emissions. Starting June 1, 2015, only diesel trucks with a diesel particulate filter such as busses, fire brigade vehicles, cleaning vehicles, post vehicles, shuttle busses, school busses etc. are allowed to be used in Beijing city.
