The Technical and Competition Committees’ Chairs and their members are keeping up the good work on the 21 cases currently open.
On the advocacy side, the Committees just participated in an online survey, commissioned by the European Commission and carried out by TRL and fka GmbH, which looked at updating the requirements on repair and maintenance information.
The Committees have also started to prepare UEIL’s response to a second public consultation launched by the European Commission on the evaluation of the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation. The consultation, which opened on 12th October, will close on 25th January 2021. The European Commission will then issue its evaluation report which will mark the end of the retrospective evaluation of the current regime. The second phase of the process, namely assessing options for the future and choosing between them, will then begin.
The next meeting of the Technical and Competition Committees will take place on 27th January 2021.
