Certificates of conformity in European System
European environmental standard Euro implies phased tightening of requirements for fuel and construction of motor vehicles. The standards Euro-2, Euro-3, Euro-4, Euro-5 and Euro-6 indicate permissible limits of exhaust harmful substances intoxicating the environment.
In the European Union countries Euro-5 standard has operated since 2009, in Russia it come into force in 2014. This means that European suppliers and manufacturers producing cars for the internal and Russian market now have to subject it to the certification of compliance with Euro 5 standard. Earlier in the European Union and the Russian Federation Euro-4 standard was in force and to comply with it the Euro-4 certificate had been issued.
Standard stipulates that the level of pollutants in the exhausts of vehicles could not exceed such indicators:
- HC (hydrocarbon – carcinogenic material impairing hearing and destroying the ozone layer) — no more than 0.05 g/km;
- NO (nitric oxide – a substance irritating the respiratory tract, contributing to spread infection in the bronchi) — no more than 0.06 g/km;
- CO (carbon oxide – inhibits blood circulation) — up to 0.8 g/km.
Without Euro-5 certificate confirming that the design matches the requirements of automotive technology it is impossible to sell and exploit cars. They may be required by regulatory authorities and consumers.
