Exhausts and emissions

Last updated 01/06/2020

Australians are growing ever more aware of the impact that cars are having on the environment. Here’s some additional information on how to keep your exhaust emission levels safe.


Keeping silent

All cars must be fitted with a silencing device to reduce noise emissions and comply with the required stationary noise level standards.


Controlling emissions

Australia put vehicle emission standards in place in the 1970s, and these have been progressively tightened over the past 40 years. The aim is to ensure all vehicles meet tight emission standards and that air quality therefore improves.

Emission limits vary, depending on whether you drive a light or heavy vehicle, and there are a series of performance standards that specify the maximum levels of emissions permitted under a specified test.

It’s been a requirement that all vehicle manufacturers fit catalytic converters to light petrol and LPG vehicles in order to meet the emission limits introduced in the mid 1980s.
