Anti-pollution regulations are promulgated on the basis of far-too-little factual information both in Europe and the U.S. Though there was perhaps justification for this in the early days due to a lack of time, a scientific review of the air quality situation is long overdue. This lack of information was appreciated but too clearly by the motor industry which has had to suffer from the effects of too hasty legislation. It is the purpose of this paper to try to set in perspective the present and proposed legislation for Europe. The paper relies heavily on work in this field undertaken on behalf of the Committee of Common Market Automobile Constructors (CCMC) by British Leyland (BL Technology Ltd) and Fiat who collected most of the experimental data with some assistance from BL.
