Expert: Needs to ban using cars not meeting environmental standards

Azerbaijan, Baku, July 16 /Trend, U.Ismayilova/

Introducing environmental standards Euro-2 to cars, imported to Azerbaijan, from July 1 has not led to expected changes on the automobile market, the expert of Participants of Real Estate Market public organization Ramil Osmanov said.

"Monitoring of the car market in the country have indicated that any administrative decision causes a serious resonance in the period of its discussions, which is linked with the lack of awareness of entrepreneurs about the expected decision," Osmanov said.

According to him, the adoption of the Euro-2 standards began to be discussed in the country in February. During February-June, the offers for the sale of old cars increased by almost three percent on the car market. The sharp increase in supply has also led to three percent decrease in prices in the market.

The situation in the market lasted just during the period of expecting the application of environmental standards. However, since July 1 after the introduction of the Euro-2 standards, the country's automobile market began to work as usual. The tendency of decrease in prices and stabilization of prices continued.

Regarding the impact of new standards on business over car imports, Osmanov said that there was no difficulty, because since the summer of last year, buyers began to buy cars manufactured since 1998, and interest in old cars among the real buyers disappeared.

Osmanov also noted that he positively assesses the introduction of environmental standards, because a lot of cars that do not meet certain standards are used in the country, adversely affecting the environment.

"However, the withdrawal of such cars had to be regulated by the market, the transition to higher-quality cars did not happen, and there is a serious need for the application of administrative measures," Osmanov believes.

The introduction of mandatory standards Euro-2 is one of these administrative measures. Given the large number of used vehicles that have a negative impact on the environment, it would be appropriate to impose a ban in future on the use of such vehicles in the country, Osmanov said.
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.
