ISO 8178-6:2018 specifies a data format for reporting the measurement results of exhaust emissions from RIC engines for mobile, transportable and stationary use, excluding engines for motor vehicles primarily designed for road use. It includes basic information of the engine being tested. Equivalent data formats including those that are electronically generated can be used as long as the required engine, test cell and test data information is made available.
ISO 8178-6:2018 applies to measurement in the laboratory and, where applicable, at site.
For engines used in machinery covered by additional requirements (e.g. occupational health and safety regulations, dust regulations for powerplants), additional test conditions and special evaluation methods can apply.
NOTE Since the report format defined in this document is intended to be applicable to all types of internal combustion engines, some items are, in certain cases, not necessary for specific engines and/or tests, especially when measuring on site. On the other hand, some additional items can be necessary according to test purposes. Deletion and addition of items to be reported are based on agreement between the parties involved.
