Circular on Strengthening the Supervision and Administration of Pollution by Exhaust from Newly Manufactured Motor Vehicles

(Promulgated by the State Environmental Protection Administration on June 2, 1998)

With the increase in the number of motor vehicles, pollution by exhaust from motor vehicles in our country is becoming more and more serious. To control the pollution and improve the air quality, these points are hereby made clear as to several issues on further strengthening the supervision and management of pollution by exhaust from newlymanufactured motor vehicles and serious implementation of the exhaust pollutants discharge standards for newly-manufactured motor vehicles:

1. All motor vehicle manufacturers shall annually report to the competent departments of environmental protection administration of the local People's governments of provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) about the pollutants discharge condition of motor vehicles produced in the year, and enclosed with the report shall be the testing report on exhaust pollutants of each type of vehicle. The competent departments of environmental protection administration of the People's governments of provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) shall, after verification of the reports submitted by the enterprises, report to the SEPA about the exhaust pollution discharge condition of motor vehicle products manufactured by the motor vehicle manufacturers before December 15 of the year, and enclose with the report the testing report on exhaust pollutants of each type of vehicle.

2. The State Environmental Protection Administratith (SEPA) will organize testing units to conduct spot test on the exhaust pollutants of motor vehicle products manufactured by motor vehicle manufacturers. The SEPA will issue the directory of motor vehicles that meet the exhaust pollutants discharge standards, based on the result of spot tests and the report of the competent departments of environmental protection administration of the People's governments of provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government). Enterprises shall not manufacture or sale motor vehicles that are not listed on the directory; for these motor vehicles, the competent departments of environmental protection administration at or above the municipality level shall be responsible for supervision over local motor manufacturers for their product.

3. Units that sale newly manufactured motor vehicles, shall sale motor vehicles that meet the State pollutants discharge standards. Motor vehicles that are sold shall be furnished with materials to certify that the exhaust pollutants meet the discharge standards. The competent departments of environmental protection administration of the People's governments of provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) shall be responsible for organizing local environmental protection departments to carry out supervision and inspection of units within their administration that sale newly manufactured motor vehicles.
