Checking the exhaust becomes a new requirement for vehicle registration –


EPA, Interior Ink Memo for measuring car emissions

KUWAIT CITY, February 23: The Director General of the Environment Agency, Sheikh Abdullah Ahmad Al-Humoud Al-Sabah, announced that EPA staff will be present at the vehicle inspection center to ensure compliance with all requirements. On the sidelines of signing the agreement with Under-Secretary of State Essam Al-Naham, Sheikh Al-Ahmad added that there will be an integration between the two sides to check car emissions and that each car will be checked separately.

He spoke of the comments between the two sides in the presence of the environmental police and that the cooperation is an extension of Kuwait’s interests, be it for citizens or residents. If the EPA agent agrees the vehicle passes the emissions test, their document will be renewed or rejected until the exhaust is repaired.


In addition, the heavy trucks transporting hazardous materials, medical and municipal solid waste, and sludge must install an EPA-approved tracking and monitoring system to track the progress of the trucks from waste handling points to treatment and disposal sites. In other news, the environmental agency removed 780 kilos of oily waste from the Al-Zour chalet area in response to the related report.
