Car emissions are classified on a scale set by the European Commission. Essentially, every couple of years the emissions regulations are tightened to help improve air quality in Europe. The 2019 scrappage schemes generally require your old car to have a Euro 4 or earlier rating – so produced before 31 December 2010, but check your car’s emissions rating using our easy-to-use scrappage scheme eligibility tool.
