Representatives in Australia, as well as the Department of the Environment and Energy, have been working with ICOMIA's* Marine Engine Committee (IMEC) to develop a new emissions standard for outdoor petrol powered equipment and marine engines (alternatively known as NRSIEE - non-road spark ignition engines and equipment).
The full emission rule is available at www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2018L00021
Please note the following key dates:
Marine engines that are certified as meeting emissions standards from the United States Environment Protection Agency, California Air Resources Board, Canada and the European Union automatically meet the new Australian standard.
If a product is not already certified then importers and manufacturers can apply for Australian certification.
British Marine members may obtain further information by contacting the Technical Department at [email protected].
