In 2019, the European Commission announced its Green Deal which was a wide-ranging strategy to become climate neutral by 2050. This included initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the amount of toxic pollution from all vehicles.
To improve air quality, Real Driving Emissions (RDE) tests using Portable Emissions Measurement Systems (PEMS) were added to the strategy. The addition of this technology resulted in a significant reduction in vehicle real world exhaust emissions, and led to their inclusion in Euro 7 proposals.
Discussions started in October 2018 and concluded in April 2021 with a final presentation to the Advisory Group on Vehicle Emissions Standards (AGVES). The Commission finally published the Euro 7 act and annexes on November 11, 2022.
Euro 7 is technology and fuel neutral and includes specifications for pure electric vehicles in terms of battery and range durability.
In addition to the above standards, Euro 7 requires comprehensive, effective deterrents to vehicle tampering in the vehicle data (e.g. odometer), engine, and emissions control devices.
Comprehensive testing will be specified for Conformity of Production (COP), In Service Conformity (ISC) and also for market surveillance purposes (by EU Commission, member states, accredited third parties, and by remote monitoring systems).
The published act and annexes by the European Commission are currently undergoing the co-decision process by EU Parliament and Council.
Simultaneously, the necessary implementing acts for Euro 7 are being drafted and discussed in AGVES and specialist expert small working groups. It has been reported that the two processes will be completed by Spring 2024.
In addition to Euro 7 legislation outlined above, both light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles will be required to meet new regulations limiting CO2 emissions under the EU “Fit for 55” package in the European Green Deal initiative.
