Commission Recommendation of 8 September 2011 on support for an EU-wide eCall service in electronic communication networks for the transmission of in-vehicle emergency calls based on 112 (eCalls)

Read the eCall Recommendation in any of the official languages.

The EC adopted a Recommendation addressing the EU Member States and asking them to call on the mobile network operators to set up their networks in a way that they correctly transmit automatic 112 emergency calls generated by cars (eCalls). The adoption of this Recommendation is the first step of a tripartite legislative process. Later on, legislative initiatives on the eCall device to be fitted into the cars and on the technical specifications of the emergency call centres will follow.
