Council Decision of 7 March 2019 establishing the position to be taken on behalf of the Union concerning the adoption of UNECE proposals relating to the harmonisation of vehicle regulations.
At international level, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) develops harmonised requirements intended to remove technical barriers to the trade in motor vehicles and to ensure that such vehicles offer a high level of safety and environmental protection.
The meetings of UNECE WP.29, the World Forum for Harmonisation of Vehicle Regulations, are held in March, June and November of each calendar year. In each meeting session new Regulations and/or modifications to existing Regulations are adopted in order to allow for technical progress.
This Decision establishes the Union's position in the voting on the Regulations, amendments, supplements and corrigenda submitted for vote in the March 2019 WP.29 meeting.
