Delphi Emissions Standards Booklets Keep Automotive Manufacturers and Suppliers On Top of Worldwide Emissions


Industry’s “Go-To” guides for regulations that fluctuate, flex and fixate

Auburn Hills, Mich. — From region-to-region around the world, local governments are enacting increasingly stringent emissions standards regulating and specifying how “clean” engines must run. However, as markets emerge, technology develops and political authorities react, keeping track of these regulations becomes increasingly difficult and crucial — especially for automotive manufacturers and suppliers.

That’s why, for more than 15 years now, Delphi — a worldwide leader in environmentally-friendly powertrain components and systems — has published and made readily available the Delphi Worldwide Emissions Standards booklets. The booklets — one for passenger cars/light-duty/motorcycles trucks and one for heavy duty/off-road vehicles — provide easy-to-read compilations of emission legislation from every corner of the globe. In addition to the printed brochures, an on-line version of each can be downloaded from

“The volume and complexity of country-specific requirements is challenging for our customers’ design engineers and marketing teams,” said Dr. Andrew Brown, Jr., Delphi executive director and chief technologist. “Delphi’s ’one-source’ guides summarize all of these requirements so the reader can easily access and compare relevant information.”

Delphi’s emission standards booklets contain summaries of exhaust emissions standards and additional emission-related requirements as well as complementary information regarding on-board diagnostics and evaporative emissions standards.

For the 2008 versions, Delphi is offering increased information on CO2 emissions and fuel economy since those regulations are becoming even more stringent. Delphi has also expanded information in the motorcycle section (found in the passenger car and light truck brochure) due to their increased importance in emerging countries.

As always, the content of Delphi’s Worldwide Emissions Standards represents the status of information at the time of printing and is subject to change (as additional legislation is passed) without notice. It does not replace the need to always consult complete official regulations.
