Environmental Zones in Austria

The environmental zones and the Austrian environmental badge are mandatory for the entire European Lorry-traffic since the 01.01.2015.
This measure is based on the IG-L emissions protection law for the air BGBl. I Nr. 115/1997 dated 30.09.1997, which regulates generally the protection of the environment and the fight against pollution.
Based on this, the IG-L regulation on emissions classification BGBl. II Nr. 120/2012 came into force on 06.04.2012. This regulation came into force on 01.09.2012 and settles the aspect, the conception, the settling and the identification of the badge.
