Summary:

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.

Further information:

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.
