NEA REGULATION ON OFF-ROAD DIESEL ENGINE
Did you know it is now a requirement for off-road diesel engines to have an NEA approved license?
The NEA website (2020, Air Pollution Regulations) states that
“ Since 1 July 2012, under the Environmental Protection and Management (Off-Road Diesel Engine Emissions) Regulations 2012, all off-road diesel engines to be imported for use in Singapore must comply with the EU Stage II, US Tier II or Japan Tier I off-road diesel engine emission standards. Off-road diesel engines are any equipment or machinery with diesel engines as the main or auxiliary prime mover, not registered with the Land Transport Authority (LTA) for use on public roads. Some examples are construction equipment such as cranes, excavators, forklifts, and power generators. Diesel engines used in ships, railways, locomotives, and aircraft do not fall under these regulations.
For used off-road diesel engines, an emission test report for each and every unit shall be submitted confirming conformance with the prescribed emission standards before they will be allowed to be used in Singapore.’’
