You will be required to comply with this standard if you are the registered owner of a motor vehicle or the owner or driver of an unregistered motor vehicle that is used on a highway.
You will also need to abide by this standard if you are the occupier of any premises that sells any equipment, facility, instrument, device or any new vehicle required to be fitted or equipped with any device or equipment that minimises the emission of noise.
This manual has been compiled from various sources for use by the Agency in its enforcement of maximum exhaust noise levels of vehicles. It provides sectors of industry and government with a comprehensive list of engine speeds for use in performing measurements of noise levels of motor vehicles by the stationary test method.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required by your business.
