Basically no new high emission motors can be imported or sold. Second hand motors wont be affected.
most four strokes will pass, and pretty much all carby two strokes will fail.
I am curious to know ,can a dealer dismantle a new high emission two stroke and sell it for parts, as he cannot sell the complete motor?

Dealers have to remove all stock of non-compliant 2 strokes by 1/7/2019 (destroy or return to supplier).

Direct injection 2 strokes like E-Tec meet the new standard.

New emissions standards apply to new products only. They do not apply to engines and equipment people already own or to second-hand engines and equipment.


"....The bottom line is that manufacturers, importers, and suppliers of NRSIEE (non-road spark ignition engines and equipment (NRSIEE) — which includes all marine engines)  aren't allowed to import new carby two-stroke engines after July 1, 2018.

They must then ensure that they do not have any unsold, non-compliant stock in their possession by July 1, 2019. This means an end to the retail sale of new carby two-stroke engines after July 1, 2019.

The Australian emission standards will not be retrospective and will only apply to new NRSIEE products brought to Australia or supplied within Australia, not to those that people already own...."


So if you want that new, bullet-proof, Yammy 30hp 2 stroke, you have two weeks to find one.

According to the Dept Energy and Environment, importing was not allowed after 1 July 18. Retailers have an extension until 1 July 2020 to move their stock.

Changes to the supply offence date

The Product Emissions Standards Rules (the Rules) have been amended to extend the commencement date of the supply offences by a further 12 months. The offences relating to the supply of products wlll now commence on 1 July 2020.
