Outdoor Power Equipment Market Research

Closed 4 Apr 2018

Opened 21 Mar 2018


The new emissions standards for outdoor power equipment and marine engines commenced in January 2018. They will bring Australia into line with other countries that regulate emissions from outdoor power equipment and marine engine products. This will mean that from:

1 July 2018 — new outdoor power equipment and marine engines imported into Australia must meet the new standards

1 July 2019 — new outdoor power equipment and marine engines supplied to the Australian market must meet the new standards.

This means suppliers will have at least 12 months to sell or dispose of any products that do not meet the new standards.
