Stage V Transition Program

We've got compliance covered


When EU Stage V takes effect, Cat® Rental Power dealers have a plan in place to ensure that all Cat mobile generator sets meet emission standards. In accordance with EU Regulation 2016/1628 for Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM), Caterpillar will continue to offer EU Stage IIIA transition engines for up to 18 months after EU Stage V goes into effect.

Effective dates:

  • January 2020 for engines equal to or greater than 56 kW and less than 130 kW
  • January 2019 for all other engines

EU Stage V standards limit harmful substances in engine exhaust gas, such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), particulate matter (PM), and nitrogen oxides (NOx).

you'll also be ROHS COMPLIANT

Effective July 2019 all Cat mobile generators, including the transition products, will meet the new Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance standard. RoHS restricts the use of ten specific hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment by the European Union (EU):

  • Lead (Pb)
  • Mercury (Hg)
  • Cadmium (Cd)
  • Hexavalent Chromium (CrVI)
  • Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)
  • Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)
  • Phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP).


Why is RoHS compliance important?

The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment, pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.
