Regulation (EU) 2020/1040 - formally signed off by the Council of the European Union and European Parliament on 15 July 2020 - introducing a number of amendments to Regulation (EU) 2016/1628 relating to transitional provisions concerning gaseous and particulate pollutant emission limits and type-approval for internal combustion engines for non-road mobile machinery (NRMM). This is a text with EEA relevance.
Regulation (EU) 2016/1628 defines pollutant emission limits for engines of different power ranges and applications for NRMM with the aim of gradually reducing emissions and phasing out equipment with the most polluting engines.
The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic caused disruption of the supply chain, which has had an impact on the the ability of manufacturers to meet some of the deadlines imposed by such Regulation. The amendment sets out new emissions limits - referred to as Stage V - to provide some lead time to make the required transition in light of the disruption caused by the pandemic.
This draft law was tabled by the European Commission on 2 June 2020. It was endorsed by the plenary of the European Parliament on 10 July, followed by the Council of the European Union on 14 July. It was signed by the co-legislators on the following day and published in the Official Journal on 17 July 2020.
