The Department and its agencies have received approximately 240 inquiries on the removal of particulate filters over the last 12 months.

This topic is one of a very large number on which the Department regularly provides advice to businesses and to the public. The Department's officials have been asked to ensure that suitable advice is available on the Government website.
