A method and content analysis of emissions regulations in the European Union and Germany

'European emissions law' consists of a whole bundle of regulations, directives, UN/ECE regulations and national regulations to which heed has to be paid. In these times of the diesel scandal, it is more important than ever to keep an eye on all these regulations to ensure behaviour that is in conformity with the law.

In the current issue of the Zeitschrift zum Innovations- und Technikrecht (InTeR), Philipp Reusch and Marie Neumann provide precisely that kind of overview:

  • exhaust after-treatment systems and emissions
  • provisions of emissions law in Europe and Germany
  • defeat devices
  • exceptions to prohibition of the use of defeat devices
