Since 1 January 2018, the permanent LEZ has been in force across the territory of the 19 Brussels communes.

LEZ stands for "Low Emission Zone". The term is used to designate where polluting vehicles are not allowed to drive in a given city, or areas of that city. It is one of the measures taken in numerous European cities to improve air quality and consequently public health.

The introduction of the Low Emission Zone in the Brussels-Capital Region will be an evolutive process. LEZ applies every day of the week, 24/7.

The introduction of the LEZ is a project in which various authorities are involved, specifically Brussels Environment, Brussels Mobility, the Brussels Regional Informatics Centre, Brussels Prevention and Security and  Brussels Fiscality.
