End-of-life vehicles – revision of EU rules – open for feedback

The European Commission is asking for feedback on the revision of EU rules relating to end-of-life vehicles (ELVs).


End-of-life vehicles – revision of EU rules - open for feedback f four

EU environmental rules aim to ensure that end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are managed sustainably. They seek to eliminate hazardous substances in cars and require that most ELV parts and materials are reused or recycled.

This initiative proposes improved collection, treatment and recycling of ELVs. It aims to ensure consistency with European Green Deal objectives by encouraging the car industry to adopt a sustainable model for the design and production of cars.

Inception Impact Assessments aim to inform citizens and stakeholders about the Commission’s plans in order to allow them to provide feedback on the intended initiative and to participate effectively in future consultation activities.

Feedback will be taken into account for further development and fine-tuning of the initiative. The Commission will summarise the input received in a synopsis report explaining how the input will be taken on board and, if applicable, why certain suggestions can’t be taken up. Feedback received will be published on this site and therefore must adhere to the feedback rules.

The roadmap describes the problems to be tackled and objectives to be met, explain why EU action is needed, outline policy options and describe the main features of the consultation strategy.

This roadmap is open for feedback for 4 weeks from 22nd October 2020 – 19th November 2020 (midnight Brussels time).
