Another regulation required the retirement of buses older than 10 years (about 3,500 buses) in 1995. Municipal emission standards in the Capital Federal are embodied in Ordinance No. 39,025 and appear to be tighter than national emission limits. It is understood that Argentine standards conform closely to Brazilian standards although implementation is delayed because of the current limited availability of unleaded gasoline. This is the opposite of the situation in the United States. The Australian Transport Advisory Council (ATAC)is composed of federal and state transport ministers who meet twice a year.

These emission limits were reinforced by the Joint Resolutions 96/94 and 58/94 issued by the Secretaries of Transport and Industry in March 1994. Emission limits are established with a different compliance schedule for trucks and urban passenger transport vehicles. In addition, emission limits for particulate matter are being established for the years 1996 and 2000. The exhaust emission standards for new light-duty gasoline-fueled vehides, new heavy-duty vehicles, diesel-fueled vehicles, and for all used vehicles appear to be based on ECE regulations.

E. standards. With the recent shift to decision procedures requiring less-than-unanimous agreement within the European Union, it has been possible to adopt more stringent emission standards. standards.
