Switzerland adapts its Emission Testing method
Last week, the Federal Roads Office (OFROU) formalized the introduction of the PN measurement within MOT testing.
« Bern, 28.02.2022 - Fine dust is harmful to health. Exhaust gas regulations are intended to reduce this type of pollution. However, recent studies have shown that the current measuring procedures are not precise enough to detect all defective particle filters. DETEC has therefore decided that a new measurement method will be introduced on January 1, 2023. » Read the OFROU press release
Switzerland thus becomes the 4th European country to introduce this new mandatory measure.
As of January 1, 2023, all diesel vehicles equipped with a particulate filter must be subjected to exhaust particle measurement within the MOT inspection.
Consequently, the sector has to prepare itself for the implementation of this new process with reliable, approved and inexpensive equipment.
