Extension of transition deadlines Stage V Regulation has become EU law a few days ago. In this post, published a few weeks ago, we had reported the request coming from several associations. 2016/1628 on Stage V emissions from non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) was published last 17th July on the Official Journal of the European Union.
The European industry associations representing NRMM manufacturers, namely CECE, CEMA, EGMF, EUnited Municipal Equipment & Cleaning, Europgen and FEM, warmly welcomed the positive conclusion of this process.
Stage V Regulation, 12-months extension for engines <56kW and ≥130kW
This final step of the legislative process confirms that the 12-months extension of certain transitional provisions is officially EU law and is applicable retroactively from 1st July 2020. This amendment to the Stage V Regulation extends by 12 months the 30th June and 31st December 2020 deadlines for the production and placing on the market of NRMM and tractors fitted with transition engines <56kW and ≥130kW.
Avoiding economic damage and unnecessary waste of raw materials
This fundamental political success obtained by the united NRMM industry allows machinery manufacturers to avoid economic damage and unnecessary waste of raw materials and resources since the transition engines were already built in 2018 and would otherwise have to be scrapped.
NRMM and tractors fitted with transition engines between 56 kW and 130 kW are not affected by this extension and retain the applicable 2021 deadlines.
