The European Commissions launched a public consultation on potential measures to improve the implementation of certain aspects of the Directive on end-of-life vehicles, with emphasis on ELVs of unknown whereabouts. This public stakeholder consultation runs for twelve weeks from 22 June 2016 to 14 September 2016 and is run by Oeko-Institut e.V. on behalf of the European Commission.
The objective of this consultation is to receive the views of stakeholders or individuals concerned with the topic of the consultation and to potentially publish them on the internet. The context of this public consultation includes the following EU documents:
- Directive 2000/53/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 September 2000 on end-of life vehicles (subsequently called the “ELV Directive”);
- Commission Decision 2005/293/EC of 1 April 2005 laying down detailed rules on monitoring reuse/recovery and reuse/recycling targets set out in Directive 2000/53/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on end-of life vehicles (subsequently called the “Commission Decision”).
Other legally binding documents and measures related to the topic of the consultation (on the EU and Member States level) may also be included in the scope.
The survey contains 6 topics:
- Keeping track of vehicles within the EU (intra-EU trade)
- Methods to achieve more complete reporting on extra-EU export and ways to distinguish between exporting ELVs vs. used vehicle
- Enforcement techniques to reduce illegal dismantling of ELVs at dealers and repair shops (garages) and actions to improve ATF compliance
- Public awareness and incentives for ELV tracking and environmental risks
- Aspects to improve coverage and data quality when reporting on ELVs (possible revision of the Commission Decision 2005/293/EC)
- Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and ELVs
This public stakeholder consultation is a part of the study “Assessment of the implementation of Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of life vehicles (the ELV Directive) with emphasis on the end-of life vehicles of unknown whereabouts”.
