New Emission Standards have commenced

On July 1 2018 Australia’s new Emissions Standard for non-road spark ignition engines up to

19 kw commenced for outdoor power equipment and marine engines.

Only products that meet our emissions standard, or have an exemption, will be allowed into Australia.

This includes:

  • spark ignition engines with a maximum power of 19 kilowatts. These can be used in household and commercial operations, and include lawn mowers, ride-on mowers, mulchers, leaf blowers, generators, pumps, chain saws, and other small handheld or pushed/pulled equipment.
  • spark ignition engines used in marine vessels including: outboard engines, personal watercraft and stern-drive engines.

The noxious emissions standards apply to new products. They will not apply to engines and equipment people already own, or to second-hand engines and equipment.

From 1 July 2019, only products that meet our emissions standard, or have an exemption, will be allowed to be supplied in Australia. Again, the emissions standards apply to new products and won’t apply to engines and equipment people already own, or to second-hand engines and equipment.

To register a complaint or a tip off regarding noncompliance with the Act and/or Regulations, please call 1800 803 772 or email productemissions@environment.gov.au
