    I just got this news:
    Since 2004 the NSW Government has been investigating measures to encourage the adoption of less polluting small engines by influencing manufacturers and importers to supply cleaner products and informing and influencing consumers to purchase cleaner small engines. By 2006 the emissions from small engines had become a national issue and the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Heritage is due to release a scoping report following consultation with the states and industry in early 2007. The introduction of Australian standards are generally supported by industry and if introduced would most likely reflect the US EPA standards.
