Abstract: The PMP is an inter-governmental research programme conducted under the auspices of UNECE GRPE to develop new vehicle exhaust particle measurement procedures for regulatory use. The PMP was inaugurated due to health concerns over nanoparticles and concerns over the ability of the current particulate mass measurement method to enable the forced adoption of technologies which effectively control their emissions. The PMP mandate was to develop techniques to replace or complement the particulate mass measurement method that must be applicable to Light Duty Vehicle & Heavy Duty Engine type approval testing. A further objective was to provide data on the performance of different vehicle technologies according to the new measurement procedures. The PMP has proceeded in 3 phases: ¿ Phase I (2001-2) developed protocols for examining different candidate measurement systems. ¿ Phase II (2002-3) evaluated a range of measurement techniques and sample conditioning systems. ¿ Phase III (2004-) is validating the recommended measurement techniques via inter laboratory test programmes.
