*The Euro 6 standard becomes law in the 28 (including Croatia, which joins on 1 July 2013) EU member states on 1 September 2014 for the approval of vehicles, and from 1 January 2015 for the registration and sale of new types of cars.

All vehicles equipped with a diesel engine will be required to substantially reduce their emissions of nitrogen oxides as soon as the Euro 6 standard enters into force. For example, emissions from cars and other vehicles intended to be used for transport will be capped at 80mg/km (an additional reduction of more than 50% compared to the Euro 5 standard).

Combined emissions of hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides from diesel vehicles will also be reduced. These will be capped at, for example, 170mg/km for cars and other vehicles intended to be used for transport.
