On August 30, 2016, China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) and the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) jointly released the first-ever national emission standards for marine engines used in domestic shipping in China. Phase I standards will take effect on July 1, 2018, and stricter Phase II standards will take effect on July 1, 2021.
The China 6 standard combines best practices from both European and U.S. regulatory requirements in addition to creating its own. This policy update provides detail on how this standard is unique, a comparison with emission regulations in other major markets, and a summary of the impact of this rule.
The Chinese Ministry of Industry, Information and Technology released, for public comments, proposed fuel-consumption standards for two- and three-wheeled vehicles (motorcycles and mopeds). Upon approval, the new standards will come into effect beginning on July 1, 2018, for the new type-approval model and beginning on July 1, 2019, for all new vehicle sales and registrations.
Describes the details of the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), the International Civil Aviation Organization’s market-based measure to offset most of the growth in aviation carbon dioxide emissions beginning in 2020.

The proposal would essentially add a new NEV credit program to the existing corporate average fuel consumption regulation for passenger cars overseen by MIIT.
Summarizes the final rulemaking on new Phase 2 standards to reduce HDV fuel consumption and GHG emissions. Together with Phase 1, the increased efficiency of HD trucks and buses will cut fuel use by over one-third by 2050.
The goal of this new stage of standard is to reduce fuel consumption by about 15% in 2020 from the 2015 levels, in order to further reduce the gap between China and other more developed markets globally.
