Type Approval of Motor Vehicles (Regulation)

EU regulations on the type-approval of motor vehicles will be implemented more effectively and the market surveillance of motor vehicles already in service will be improved. For this purpose, the European Commission has proposed a Regulation. Nevertheless, it will give rise to additional costs both for consumers and manufacturers.


The planned compliance verification by the Commission may help to improve detection of infringements of the type-approval regulations EU wide. It is however necessary to ensure that application of the Regulation does not give rise to any inefficient duplication of structures (national - European).
