What are the recognised foreign standards?
Section 26 of the Product Emissions Standards Rules 2017 details foreign standards that are accepted for outdoor power equipment and marine engines covered by the Rules. Products that are certified to one of the foreign standards will automatically meet the Australian standard. The foreign authorities listed in Section 26 of the Rules are the United States Environmental Protection Agency, California Air Resources Board, member states of the European Union, and Environment and Climate Change Canada.
Further information and guidance on what a foreign certification number looks like is available for download.
