Azerbaijan, Baku, July 2 / Trend U. Ismayilova /
Cars, to be imported to Azerbaijan, will be checked annually according to the list approved by the State Committee for Standardization, Metrology and Patents, the message said.
"Cars are allowed in accordance with international standards, depending on a manufacturer and a year of production," a statement said.
The report also said that the Customs Committee bought specialized equipment to verify the emissions of pollutants.
Abdullayev said that environmental standards Euro-2 introduced from July 1, 2010 will be applied to imported cars. These standards will not apply to used cars in the country.
New standards include two directions. The first one includes new cars imported into Azerbaijan. If the model of car is brought into the country for the first time, it is necessary to determine the type of procedure to meet the emission standards. When vehicles of the same brand are imported again, check will not be required.
The second trend is the study of exploited vehicles for their compliance with emissions standards Euro-2.
Cars produced after 1996 (when the standard Euro-2 is used), imported into Azerbaijan by legal and physical entities will be checked for compliance specified in the data sheet data on emissions.
When importing previously unexploited cars (new models), they will be checked once, after which the data will be entered in a special database. After that, all cars of this model not used previously, will be brought in the country without being checked for compliance with Euro-2.
These conditions do not apply to vintage cars.
Vehicles imported into Azerbaijan after July 1, will be annually checked, along with the annual mandatory.
Currently, the only producer of oil in the country, in particular, gasoline and diesel fuel, is SOCAR. Previously SOCAR president Rovnag Abdullayev said that domestically produced gasoline and diesel fuel fully consistent with Euro-2.
SOCAR plans to improve the quality of produced fuel up to Euro-3 standard modernizing refineries.
SOCAR intends to build a new complex, which will include new oil refinery, gas processing and petrochemical production to produce oil products in accordance with Euro-5 standards.
