Emission-Seal mandatory in parts of Austria

As per January 1st, 2015 there is URGENT and RELEVANT news for trucks travelling in Eastern Austria- an Emission-Seal („IG-Luft: Abgasplaketten“) is required for all vehicles above 3.5 tons and all vehicles in the Category “N”  below 3.5 tons.

The Emission-Seal is also required on all Motorways or Express-Roads in the designated areas including the A4 and S1. The Austrian Emission-Seal can be purchased at participating ÖAMTC- and ARBÖ-offices, as well as participating truck workshops in Austria. If the Emission-Seal is not displayed, enforcement penalties of up to 2180€ are possible. Trucks over  3.5 tons do not need to visit a workshop. Operators can order the Emission-Seal at participating workshops, providing supporting vehicle registration documents.
