Australia has had vehicle emission standards in place since the early 1970s. In 1989, a Federal Act of Parliament, the “Motor Vehicles Standards Act 1989” brought new vehicle standards under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government. The regulations, encoded as the “Australian Design Rules” (ADR), are administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Transport.

Australian vehicle emissions legislation is aligned to that of Europe, with EU standards introduced from 2002 for diesel vehicles and from 2003 for gasoline vehicles. Euro 5 standards are currently in place. Proposed updated dates for the introduction of Euro 6 standards were published in October 2020.
