Emission Subject

KBA is Germany’s associated type approval and Market Surveillance authority. Thus, it benefits the automotive sector and especially the diesel emission subject greatly in terms of clarification and reconditioning.

Actions performed are based on the valid approval regulations for vehicles, vehicle parts and separate technical units.

Emission strategies and software updates applied in vehicles are tested in terms of their reliability. These tests are the foundation for the measures taken by KBA, such as the order to remove a defeat device or the approval of software updates, in order to restore conformity with the respective regulation. KBA does provide the public with information about affected vehicle variants as well as the effectiveness of mentioned software updates.
