Proposal presented on 14 June 2019 by the European Commission amending the provisions of EU legislation relating to car emissions testing in real driving conditions.
In December 2018, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) delivered a judgment relating to cases T-339/16, T-352/16 and T-391/16, which were submitted against Regulation (EU) 2016/646 amending rules as regards emissions from light passenger and commercial vehicles (Euro 6). Regulation (EU) 2016/646 sets out the conformity factors used to assess compliance of the vehicle with the emission limits while performing a Real-Driving Emissions (RDE) test. The contested conformity factors were used to progressively reduce the discrepancy between emissions measured in real driving and those measured in a laboratory.
In response to the ruling, the European Commission adopted a legislative initiative in June 2019 to reinsert certain aspects of the real driving emissions testing into legislation by amending Regulation (EC) No 715/2007 on type approval of motor vehicles with respect to emissions from light passenger and commercial vehicles (Euro 5 and Euro 6) and on access to vehicle repair and maintenance information.
