PR(07)06: The EFTA Surveillance Authority brings a case before the EFTA Court regarding Iceland’s failure to implement rules on emissions of pollutants from machinery engines

7.3.2007

The EFTA Surveillance Authority decided today to bring a case before the EFTA Court regarding Iceland’s failure to implement Directive 2002/88/EC.

The Directive aims at reducing emissions from engines installed in certain types of non-road machinery, and amends Directive 97/68/EC. The objective of Directive 97/68/EC is to improve air quality by reducing emissions of gaseous and particulate pollutants from internal combustion engines. Directive 2002/88/EC widens the scope of the emission restriction rules by extending them to cover small spark ignition (gasoline) engines installed in non-road mobile machinery.

Under Article 7 of the EEA Agreement, Iceland is obliged to implement all acts referred to in the Annexes to the EEA Agreement. The Directive should have been implemented in national law by 11 August 2004.
