Our guide below will answer many of the questions you might have on the clean vehicle retrofit accreditation scheme (CVRAS), low emission zones (LEZ), clean air zones (CAZ) and London’s ultra low emission zone (ULEZ).
The clean vehicle retrofit accreditation scheme (CVRAS) supports the operation of clean air zones (CAZ). The aim of the scheme is to address the air pollution emissions from buses, coaches, heavy goods vehicles, mini-buses, taxis and vans. To learn more about CVRAS, download a free copy of Zemo Partnership’s Clean vehicle retrofit technology guide.
The CVRAS Register contains approved and CAZ compliant companies and emission reduction systems, based on make, model and engine type.

Get CVRAS certified
Manufacturers of abatement equipment must get approved by CVRAS before it can be added to the list of approved devices available to vehicle and CAZ scheme operators.
Emission reduction systems will need to demonstrate robust technical performance before they can be approved. Manufacturers will also need to have quality management systems to certified, for example, ISO 9001. Please see the scheme documentation below for further details.
