Azerbaijan kicks off Euro-4 standard application

01 April 2014 [09:15] - TODAY.AZ

The process of applying the Euro-4 ecological standard for vehicles will begin in Azerbaijan on April 1.


The Euro-4 ecological standard will be applied to the imported and manufactured vehicles in Azerbaijan from April 1, 2014 to reduce the emission of pollutants by vehicles and improve the environmental situation in the country in accordance with a decision of the Azerbaijani Cabinet of Ministers.


The decision on applying the Euro-4 ecological standard is related to the growth of car imports to the country which negatively affects the environment and public health, the head of the State Committee Ramiz Hasanov said earlier.



The committee head said that around 100,000 cars were imported into the country, over 50,000 of which were used cars. These figures were equal to 64,000 and 27,000 respectively in 2011.
