Diesel Vehicle Emission Testing

Envirotest Environmental Consultants CC offers diesel vehicle emission testing throughout South Africa

Envirotest Environmental Consultants CC uses the Lucas Hartridge Smokemeter 4, for diesel vehicle emission testing. Testing is conducted on your premises and a scientific report of the testing will be issued to your company for submission to the ISO Certification auditors to confirm compliance with the South African air pollution legislation.

Please contact us with any queries you might have.

Recognised Standard & Legislation
ISO 14001 is an international standard for environmental management systems (EMS’s) and is based on three key principles:
  1) Prevention of pollution
  2) Compliance with relevant environmental law
  3) Continual improvement in both the system and environmental performance.

Smokey VehicleThe regulations that dealt with noxious or offensive gases emitted by diesel driven vehicles, R1651 dated 20 September 1974 has been repealed together with the Atmospheric Pollution Prevention Act (APPA), No.45 of 1965 on the 1st of April 2010. APPA has now been replaced by the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act, No. 39 of 2004. Each municipality is now responsible to deal with diesel vehicle emissions within their own areas of jurisdiction by means of promulgating and enforcing their own by-laws. These by-laws determine the maximum allowed exhaust emissions for all diesel-driven motor vehicles. A Model Air Quality Management By-Law, which, inter alia, deals with diesel vehicle emissions, has been promulgated by the Department of Environmental Affairs on the 2nd of July 2010 for easy adoption and adaption by municipalities.

Compliance with promulgated by-laws, as well as with the company’s Environmental Management System, should be determined during the annual auditing of your company. To ensure that your company is in full compliance, annual testing of all diesel-driven vehicles is recommended.
