Average Emissions Monitoring

This page was last updated on 22nd March 2021

VCA has been nominated by the Secretary of State for Transport to manage the collection and processing of average emissions data for both Light Duty Vehicles (LDVs) and later in 2021, the collection of data in respect of Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDVs).

VCA will also be responsible for levying fines where manufacturers exceed their  emissions targets.

Further information, including the process for applying for UK derogations and eco-innovations will be published here as soon as it becomes available.

In the meantime, you can read the outcome from the consultation on regulating CO2 emission standards for new cars and vans after transition here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/regulating-co2-emission-standards-for-new-cars-and-vans-after-transition
