Abstract

In view of the need to contribute to the protection of the environment and human health by controlling emissions of nitrogen dioxide, particulates and other pollutants such as carbon monoxide, this Directive makes provision on emission standards and type-approval procedures for engines to be installed in non-road mobile machinery. For the purposes of this Directive, non-road mobile machinery shall mean any mobile machine, transportable industrial equipment or vehicle with or without body work, not intended for the use of passenger or goods transport on the road, in which an internal combustion engine as specified in Annex I section 1 is installed. The procedure to be followed within each Member State to certify that an internal combustion engine type or engine family with regard to the level of emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants by the engines satisfies the relevant technical requirements of this Directive is described under articles 3 to 5.
