For the Subsidizations for Replacing Large Old Diesel Vehicles (大型柴油車汰舊換新補助) and the Subsidizations for Repairing Fuel Injection Systems or Installing Air Pollution Control Equipment on Large Diesel Vehicles (大型柴油車調修燃油控制系統或加裝空氣污染防制設備補助), the EPA has been in charge of handling subsidy applications, reviews, and appropriations from 1 January 2021
The EPA said that the online system for applying for all subsidies for Phases 1-3 large diesel vehicles (https://dvs.epa.gov.tw) has been established to expedite and enhance the processing and reviewing of subsidy applications. Vehicle owners only need to get online to sign up for an account, get a pin code, and upload needed documents and photos for the subsidy applications via mobile devices. All documents and photos to be uploaded must be intact and clear without cut-off corners or edges, or light reflections. In the instance of applying for a subsidy to purchase a new vehicle to replace an old one, uploading just takes a few minutes once all required documents and photos are prepared. In addition, the EPA has set up a single service counter (02-85124402) to provide vehicle owners with information on subsidy or application matters.
Vehicle owners are urged to use the online application method when applying for subsidies to save time on mailing, submitting and resubmitting documents. The EPA will continue to optimize the digitization of the application process and improve the quality of administrative operation to protect the rights of vehicle owners with speedy and convenient services. Owners of large diesel vehicles are urged to replace their vehicles as early as possible as the subsidy will be reduced after 10 December 2021.
