On 11 February 2014, the Commission issued Regulation (EU) No 136/2014 amending Directive 2007/46/EC, Regulation (EC) No 692/2008 as regards emissions from light passenger and commercial vehicles (Euro 5 and Euro 6) and Regulation (EU) No 582/2011 as regards emissions from heavy duty vehicles (Euro VI). The two regulations specify the reference fuels which should be used by vehicle manufacturers to perform emissions tests in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 715/2007 and Regulation (EC) No 595/2009.

Due to the increasing usage of biofuels in the market in recent years, specifications of reference fuels are adapted to correspond to the fuels available currently and in the foreseeable future on the EU market.
