This Comment will first examine current United States policy, standards, and regulation of the emissions dispelled by moving vehicles. Second, an introduction to the European Economic Community (EEC) standard will be set forth, followed by a brief discussion on legislative harmonization within the EEC. An analysis of the existing policy for the regulation of vehicle emissions within the Community will also be presented. Finally, since the proposed integration of the EEC is a key step on the way to creation of a "United States of Europe," the United States and EEC policies will be comparatively examined.
