Catalytic Converters and Test Pipes

We take our responsibility to the environment seriously and so only allow the listing of catalytic converters on eBay that meet government environmental regulations.

Policy overview

The sale of catalytic converters on eBay is permitted, unless such sale contravenes any other law or regulation in Singapore.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:

  • Listing cancellation
  • Loss of eBay fees
  • Limits placed on account privileges
  • Account suspension

Additional information

Vehicle emission standards are established in Singapore by the Pollution Control Department (PCD) of the National Environmental Agency. With effect from 1 July 1994, all petrol-driven vehicles are required to comply with the exhaust emission standard as specified in either the European Directive 91/441/EEC (CED) or Article 31 of the Japanese Safety Regulations for Road Vehicles. To comply with these emission standards, all petrol-driven vehicles are fitted with catalytic converters.

If you have any particular questions relating to environmental regulations or environmental issues in Singapore, please contact the National Environmental Agency - opens in new window or tab or the The Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE) - opens in new window or tab.
