CNG labels must be displayed on bumpers

Media Replies 11 Jul 2008 Carbon Emissions-Based Vehicle Scheme (CEVS) Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)

I refer to Mr Tang Kwan Yin's letter "CNG labelling: Just whose rule is it?" (The Straits Times, 3 July 2008).

We would like to clarify that the requirement to display a CNG label on the front and rear bumpers, is set as a condition for approval of new or converted Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles. The label serves to alert emergency responders from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) when responding to calls to road traffic accidents or fires involving CNG vehicles so as to ensure appropriate procedures can be taken to mitigate the incident.

The design of the CNG label is in accordance with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Regulation Number 110, which is an internationally recognised standard for CNG vehicles. The LTA is in the process of formalising the requirement to display the CNG label design as a regulation. Taxis operators have also been reminded to ensure that all CNG taxis display the CNG labels prominently on the bumpers.

We apologise to Mr Tang if the above information was not well explained previously.
