34. The Chair noted conformity factor were different between Euro 6d and Euro 6e levels, and encouraged Australia to use the complete package of 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 83, 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 154 and UN Regulation on RDE to get the state-of-the-art regulatory package for tailpipe pollutant emissions. He further mentioned there was no immediate solution to provide a regulatory package equivalent to Euro 6d levels.
