Based on this decree it is obligatory for car dealers to indicate clearly "by labelling and advertising" the fuel consumption and carbon-dioxide emission data of vehicles based on technical documentation. This data must be displayed on all advertisements. The Hungarian State Transport Authority is responsible for collecting the fuel consumption and CO2 emission data of all cars and for the publishing of an annual to be made available in all dealer points
