Consultation on enhancing the implementation of the internal market for motor vehicles Published on: 08/12/2010
The EU motor vehicle type-approval legislation specifies safety and environmental protection requirements that new motor vehicles need to fulfil to be type-approved and to be allowed on the European Union market. Recently, this legislation has been considerably amended and updated to provide a coherent and robust framework fully adapted to the principles of "better regulation" and "simplification", and to respond adequately to societal concerns on the protection of citizens and the environment. However, there may still be room for improvement as far as the implementation and enforcement of existing provisions are concerned. In this context we are looking for the input of all relevant stakeholders, in order to assess how the implementation of the Internal Market for Motor Vehicles can be best enhanced.
