Australia - Heavy Duty Vehicles

Status

Back To Top

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, defined as  “Australian Design Rules” (ADR), are administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Transport.

Australian vehicle emissions regulations generally follow those of the EU. Current standards for heavy duty vehicles are Euro V; US EPA 2007 standards and Japan 05 standards are accepted as alternatives. Euro VI emissions standards are due to apply from 1 November 2024.
