"Stage I" rules on VOC emissions implemented behind schedule

Regulations implementing the 1994 EC Directive on "Stage I" controls on emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the petrol distribution chain were laid before Parliament in October, ten months behind schedule.1 The Government has deferred a decision on how many small petrol stations to exempt from the new rules. The capital cost of complying with the regulations is now put at £278 million, about 20% less than earlier official estimates.
