What is stage 5 for engine-powered forklifts?

Stage V, or Stage 5, is the new European Emission Regulation for Non-Road Mobile Machinery, including forklift trucks ((EU) 2016/1628), which came into force on 1 January 2019. The purpose of Stage 5 is to reduce the emissions from combustion engines by lowering the limit of exhaust levels of diesel and gasoline (LPG) engines.
