The Ricardo EMLEG service provides online summaries of emissions regulations for over 50 countries including the EU, US, China, India, Brazil and Japan.

Significant developments and the phase-in of new regulations are ongoing in several areas. The EMLEG database includes updates on all countries that have emissions legislation information available. It will include the latest updates on the Bharat Stage VI standards in India, the development of European emissions standards post-Euro 6/VI, CO2 emissions targets related to the Paris Agreement, US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and CARB (California Air Resources Board) emission requirements and more.

Jon Andersson

"The Ricardo EMLEG database is a highly convenient and accessible resource that I regularly use to keep me appraised of changes to global emissions legislation. The fact that the database is constantly being updated with detail and insightful comments by the EMLEG consultant, Dr Giuliana Trippa, gives me confidence that I will always see the latest, most relevant, information."

- Jon Andersson, Global Technical Expert, Emissions Measurements & Standards, Ricardo

"EMLEG was immensely helpful in our work [Study on Post-EURO 6/VI emission standards in Europe (part A)] and we were quite satisfied with the overall experience, as it has provided a very accurate, detailed and up-to-date summary of regulations worldwide. Especially for emission standards in other regions, which are often hard to find and interpret."

- Nikos Tsalikidis Research Engineer, on behalf of EMISIA
