IMCO votes positively on new exhaust emissions legislation

Yesterday, the European Parliament’s Internal Market Committee (IMCO) adopted an opinion on the proposal for a revision of Directive 97/68 on exhaust emissions from non-road mobile machinery. FEM welcomes the outcome of the vote and notably the extension of the transition period, the introduction of a replacement engines provision and the specific treatment of mobile cranes.

We feel the IMCO Committee has adequately addressed machine manufacturers’ technical and economic constraints without affecting the environmental objectives of the legislation, which we fully support”, said Olivier Janin, Secretary General of FEM.
