From 2019/2020 – The Czech Emission Badge
Starting on 2019/2020 the Emission Badge “Emisni-Plaketa” will be introduced in the Czech Republic. The Emission Badge is mandatory for cars, trucks, buses and motorbikes.
From this date, so-called low-emission zones, or environmental zones can also be established in the Czech towns, as is already established in the capital Prague.
The introduction of low-emission zones is established in § 14 of Law no. 201/2012 Coll., on the protection of air purity and by a Government Decree 56/2013 Coll., on the classification of public vehicles to individual emission categories and then the coloured associated Emission Badges.
Basically, it is expected that the emission class EURO 3 (yellow sticker) may only enter the low emission zones until 31/12/2020 same as it is regulated in the capital Prague. From 01/01/2022 onward most likely only green emission badges will then be allowed in much of the country. In any case, a final decision on a ban for yellow emission badges can be made at the discretion of each city.
