BEIJING (Reuters) - Beijing plans to implement harsher emission standards for vehicles starting next month, one of its latest emergency measures to curb the city's air pollution, official Xinhua News Agency reported on Wednesday.

The new Beijing V emission standard, similar to the Euro V standard in Europe, will be adopted as of February 1, Xinhua cited Fang Li, spokesman for the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau, as saying.

The new rule applies to vehicles that have yet to receive license plates and not those already in use.
