EPA certificate required for vehicle renewal
Environment Public Authority (EPA) is planning to implement a new condition for issuance of road license for vehicles which will be introduced in the beginning of 2019.
According to local media report, a certificate from the authority should be presented to prove the emissions from the vehicle are not harmful to the environment.
EPA Director General Sheikh Abdullah Al-Ahmad said, “A mechanism will be set in place to organize the process through which the authority will issue certificate to car owners, and General Traffic Department will then be addressed to approve the renewal of road licenses”.
“Vehicle owners will not be able to renew the road license for their vehicles without certification from EPA”, he affirmed.
The new condition will be implemented on everyone. The objective is to remove from the roads vehicles that harm the environment and cause noise pollution.
