The Technical and Competition Committees’ latest meeting was held on the 27th of January, during which they discussed the ongoing work on the 21 cases currently open.
On the advocacy side, the Committees participated in a public consultation launched by the European Commission on the evaluation of the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation. The consultation, which opened on 12 October 2020 closed on 25 January 2021.
The Committees have also been in regular contact with the European Commission and national experts in charge of the adoption of the draft Delegated Regulation amending Annex X of Regulation 2018/858 (on approval and market surveillance of motor vehicles and their trailers) to express their position on the file.
In both cases, the Committees emphasized once again the importance of guaranteeing proper and timely access to technical information for independent lubricant manufacturers.
