The Euro 5 standard governs model approval for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles and allows access to repair information for vehicles.

According to the standard, diesel-operated vehicles can only emit 180 milligrams of nitric oxide (NOx) per kilometer – instead the current allowance of 250. The permissible emission of soot particles is lowered: Instead of 25 milligrams per kilometer, now only five. Nitric oxide emissions are limited to 60 milligrams per kilometer for gasoline engines (formerly 80). These requirements for model approval have been standardized throughout the European Union. At the same time, vehicle manufacturers have a duty to inform workshops. The Euro 5 standard applies to all new models made since September 2009.
