Amendment    1

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 1 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(1 a)  An accurate definition of the different features of agricultural tractors based on the analysis of their technical characteristics is of utmost importance for the correct and complete implementation of this Regulation and of the delegated and implementing acts adopted under it. Considering that discussions on the definition of the categories take place in the relevant international fora, of which the European Union is a party, the Commission should take the necessary steps to assess and modify accordingly the categories, in respect of highly specialised tractors, in order to prevent any disproportionate and negative effects on specific agricultural cultivation;
