Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)

These Regulations amend the definition of “the emissions publication” in Schedule 10 to the Motor Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1999 (“the 1999 Regulations”) so as to refer to the most recent (i.e. the seventh) edition of the publication entitled “In-Service Exhaust Emission Standards for Road Vehicles”. The publication specifies, with respect to vehicles with spark ignition engines, the maximum permitted carbon monoxide content of exhaust emissions at idling speed and the limits for the ratio of air to petrol vapour entering the combustion chamber, in relation to each of the vehicle models named in the publication.

Copies of the emissions publication can be obtained from the Vehicle Inspectorate, Berkeley House, Croydon Street, Bristol, BS5 0DA (Telephone number 0117 954 3277).

The Regulations also insert a condition in paragraph 8 of Schedule 10 to the 1999 Regulations viz testing in accordance with point 8.2.2 of Annex 2 of the Council Directive 96/96/EC (O.J. No. L46, 17.02.97, p. 1) as replaced with Article 1 of Commission Directive 1999/52/EC (O.J. No. L142, 05.05.99, p. 26).
